[hylafax-users] Text Fonts

Hello All,
I'm new with HylaFAX and happily, it is working quite 
well for me in the tests I have done so far.  

The first use will likely be an Email-to-fax application. 
To that end, I have been experimenting with faxing of 
ASCII text files, using both the sendfax and faxmail 

Oh yes: the environment:  Test OS: RedHat 7.2 (fully 
patched).  Hylafax version 4.1.5 installed from binary 
rpm hylafax-4.1.5-1rh7.i386.rpm.  Modem: USR Courier 
V.everything (class 2.0).

I am able to send faxes reliably, both using sendfax and 
faxmail.  However, the body text of the received faxes is 
different depending on which command was used.	The 
"sendfax" body text appears like Courier Bold, and the 
"faxmail" body text is MUCH lighter, and has a certain 
amount of dropout.  The size appears to be the same in 
both cases.  

The Bold version (sendfax) is more appropriate to the 
application, but faxmail has the right features to do 
the job we need.  I reviewed the man pages, and saw nothing
regarding font weight - indeed, the default text font 
(name and size) would appear to be the same for both 
sendfax and faxmail (according to the docs).

Is there a means of controlling faxmail's text conversion 
to produce a bolder font, like sendfax?

TIA for any assistance.
A. Becker
