Re: [hylafax-users] Hylafax & Exchange 2003 Integration

I'm actually running this on a trixbox, I guess I should let you know
that. I'm using the iaxmodem that from with trixbox and the latest
hylafa, I'm going to be looking at your version of hylafax shortly as
well. I'm hoping it will resolve some faxing issues over voip.
Specifically, after the fax has been received, hylafax and the remote
machine can't agree the page has been sent. But that's another issue.

Is there any documentation on the below? I'm teaching myself linux at a
steady rate but documentation has definitely been my friend!

HylaFAX doesn't have it's own SMTP server.  So you'll want to use and 
probably custom-configure specifically a bit one that comes with 
whatever platform/distribution you choose to use (sendmail, postfix, 
exim, etc).  What you need to do is to teach it how to interpret this:

To: "Kevin Pare \(Business Fax\)" 

Cc: "Kevin Pare \(Home Fax\)" 

                "Kevin Pare \(Business Fax\)" 

and/or the envelope information, to know how to invoke faxmail or 
sendfax.  If you choose to go with sendfax you'll need to create a small

wrapper script that will decode the MIME parts and do with them what you

need.  But that does give you greater control.
