See /usr/lib/fax/faxmail.ps

The domain 'fax' is a virtual domain for sendmail only. If you envoke faxmail on the
command-line ist would be
/usr/bin/faxmail -d harry@123456
/usr/bin/faxmail -d $RCPTTO         

You can also define additional Fax-Headers to pass commands to
faxmail, X-FAX-Command.

See also man (1)faxmail.
