So it is possible that Hylafax will delete a corrupt page and the sender 
will never know? Taking this to the worst case, if a one page fax is sent 
then we could miss the entire fax and the sender wouldn't be aware of this? 
Does this happen even if the receiving fax were a stand-alone machine 
rather than Hylafax? Basically, if the sending fax machine ignores RTN then 
shame on them? By the way, Hylafax is an excellent application and we like 
it a lot. I just want to make sure we totally understand its behavior in 
this situation.
