Hylafax Problems

Hi guys and gals,

I have hylafax up and running sweet as a nut at the moment. But I want to make some changes. I need all incoming faxes to be converted into PDF and emialed to a single mail address. This should be fairly easy, probably just plaing around with the faxrcvd file, but I cannot get it right.

Any help I can receive on this would be greatly appreciated

P.S. I have tried the Hylafax HOW-TO documentation, but the script I need seems to be missing.

Just edit the following file

the first 2 lines after the comments will do just that

SENDTO=FaxMaster; # by default email to FaxMaster
FILETYPE=pdf; # in PDF or tif format

instead of FaxMaster put the email of your recvipient

Yeah, I also tried PDF format but I noticed that its quality was much lower compared to TIFF so I switched back to TIFF
