Re: [hylafax-users] Printing failed faxes

Any idea on when that'll come out of beta?

Anyone with comments on how well it's been working for them?

I'm not sure I'm willing to risk beta software, regardless of how stable 
it seems. Faxes are automated, and they contain a lot of time sensitive 
things. So, it's not like someone is standing over the thing to make 
sure each fax gets where it's going.

I've been looking at the possibility of a shell script that greps 
incoming mail messages for failed notices, and then trys to dig the fax 
out of the queue to be printed.. Obviously not the idea solution
