[hylafax-users] attached PDF's to EMail

I am running HylaFax 4.1.1 on Redhat 7.2. Sending and receiving faxes works
very well, but I do have a problem email attachments. When I set FaxDispatch
to FILETYPE=pdf, the notification email is sent with an attached pdf, but I
can't open the file with Acrobat or Acrobat reader. If I save attachments,
the file size of the attached pdf is 0. If I manually run faxrcvd, I get no
errors but the same results. Snippet from faxrcvd  :

elif [ "$FILETYPE" = "pdf" ]; then
	echo "Content-Type: application/pdf; name=\"c$COMMID.pdf\"" 
	echo "Content-Description: FAX document" 
	echo "Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64" 
	echo "Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=\"c$COMMID.pdf\"" 
	echo "" 
	$TIFF2PS -a2 -O $FILE.ps $FILE 2>/dev/null # fax2ps looks bad 
	$PS2PDF $FILE.ps $FILE.pdf 2>/dev/null 
	$MIMENCODE $FILE.pdf 2>/dev/null 
	$RM -f $FILE.ps $FILE.pdf 2>/dev/null 
If I manually run tiff2ps, then ps2pdf using the same files and options, I
get a viewable pdf. Silly question, but is it possible that the pdf file is
being removed before the mimencode finishes? Any help is appreciated.
