As you can read in my e-mail I'm trying to SEND a fax and in the
specific case I have got no control over the receiving part.
What I'm surprised about is why the mechanism of adding ",,,*", that you
confirmed correct, didn't work.
Unfortunately I was not able to send the fax using another "normal" fax
machine, so I cannot assert if the problem was on the other side.
Bye and thanks!
