Fax? I thought that was obsolete. In the 80s and
early 90s I sent
and recieved 20 to 30 a day. This has fallen to 2 in the whole of

the rare doc that is required as a facsimile of the original.
True. Fax messaging is getting rare but it is still very much in
use. A lot of my clients now want fax software loaded in their pc
so that they can avoid using a fax machine. Windows XP now comes
with an inbuilt fax software that makes things easier. I am looking
for something like that in linux for those who use external modems.
hylafax, gfax, tkhylafax, movifax. Hylafax was common and in use 4 yrs
ago. U can easily build a mail to fax gateway-relay, saving your
multilocation client several thousand on STD and even more on ISD.
<Glorification on> btw i used to design fax machines and built several
prototypes, including a fax relay network and a telex-fax gateway in
the days when dialing several places in India (particularly Delhi,
Gauhati) required a steady supply of spare index fingers.
