Sounds like you are probably smarter about Hylafax than I am but... just thought I would try to help.
When I did not have the faxmaster set up how I wanted it, I would see emails from Hylafax in /var/spool/mail. They were just in a file called "fax". Maybe your mails are going there.

Also, check in etc/aliases. Don't know your distro, but suse uses the list in there to decide where emails go, i.e. system emails. I think I had to add who the faxmaster is in that file.

Also, maybe unrelated, I have in /etc/hosts this note:

# hylafax seemed to suggest to put this in. 10 June 05
# because sendfax was saying: "Can not reach server at host "localhost", port 4559"
127.0.0.1 localhost loopback

Anyway, maybe not very helpful, but good luck.

and one thing i notice is that aliases the file are in a folder called postfix on the server that does work with notification, and the aliases are just in the default on the one that notification does not work

I have /etc/aliases, and it includes the following:

faxadm: root
faxmaster: my-user-name

And I get all the most useful messages at my-user-name. I have my email program collect when it checks for mail.

I have no aliases file in /etc/postfix.

If you look in /var/spool/fax/status/any.info, you might see where HylaFax thinks mail should go. Mine says:

HylaFAX version 4.1.8 built Tue Apr 6 18:12:35 UTC 2004 for i386-suse-linux
faxmaster: my-user-name

I expect this means that HylaFax set the faxmaster name after reading it from aliases.

Luckily I have never had to tweak or change any postfix settings because it worked fine the way Suse installed it.

Location of setup.cache on my system is:
/var/spool/fax/etc/setup.cache

I have a vague memory that I also got the 'setup.cache is missing' message once before, until I ran faxsetup again.

Well, I feel like the blind leading the not-so-blind, but hope you get it sorted out soon. Good luck.
