kdeprintfax - how to insert delays in dial string?

I am trying to send a fax via kdeprintfax but I need to insert delays into a multi-part dial string. For example, "18003151234,,,,,2125551212". I chose commas because it is the standard delay symbol for a Hayes modem. Kdeprintfax ignores the commas and immediately sends both strings to the modem, which, of course, won't work. Any help would be appreciated.

Smile kdeprintfax - inserting delays into dial string

Problem solved!

After trying many, many alternatives, here is what works perfectly. Start KDEprintfax. Select Settings->"Configure KDEprintfax"->System. Insert "DIALPREFIX=18003159339,,,,,,,", or whatever you want to insert for a calling card - this happens to be for No other changes are required and ALL WORKS PERFECTLY!!

/usr/bin/fax %user_{NAME="@@"} %dev_{DEV=@@} DIALPREFIX=18003159339,,,,,,, PAGE=%page %from_{FROM=@@} %res_{??-l} send %number %files

Every fax will now go through the Calling Card, even local faxes.
