you have to look at hylafax-config and sendfax man pages to see what can be
customized "by modem" and what "by user/client" (faxmail is just another
For instance, hylafax.config says maxtries and maxdials cannot be put into
etc/config.<devid>, but into etc/config only, this would prevent "by modem";
however "sendfax" says clients can set those values with -t and -T so you
can use -t and -T for bulk faxing.
OTOH nocarrierretries cannot be set by clients, but it can be put into
etc/config.<devid>, and clients (bulk or faxmail) can select modem by "-h
..", so ...
Start playing with them with "-a <future>" and look into sendq/qXXXX to see
what's the outcome.
