The main problem with using HylaFAX with samba is the extraction of
the destination phone number. It's easy enough to set up a filter at
your spooler so that faxed-documents are sent to HylaFAX; but then how
does HylaFAX determine the phone number to use?

One possible solution that has been discussed here is to use a std
template for *ALL* your faxes, and have a particular tag which a
preliminary filter can extract the phone number from, and supply it to
HylaFAX. That's the best you can do so far without writing a client
from scratch..
