[hylafax-users] Discarded application (pdf)

Sorry if this problem was posted several times.
But I have not clear ideas.
I have hylafax 4.1.6, I have installed metamail and I use postfix and
squirrelmail to send fax through email.
Receiving fax converted in pdf is all ok.

I would like send a pdf attachment but in receiver fax machine the error
occurs: discarded application / octet-stream goes here.
I have read that is not possible send pdf (only ascii and ps)
But I have also read this (in manual typerules):

Only three types of files are accepted by the HylaFAX server for
transmission as facsimile: POSTSCRIPT® files, PDF files, and TIFF Class F
(bilevel Group 3-encoded) files. All other types of files must be converted
to one of these two formats. 

What is the problem?
Why can't I send a pdf attachment?
