We can allow the only voice announced attempt to transmit a fax. (Currently
hylafax behaves so by default with NoCarrierRetrys=1 ). In case of a wrong
number it should not be much more annoying for "80 years old widow" than
fax CNG tones.

Again, we will not repeat them. Just one attempt after remote goes
off-hook and answer. And what about the technical issues?
Hope to hear from you soon,
