Thanks Dave,

I do have hyla.conf.  I have added 'AutoCoverPage:No'  at the bottom.  I still 
get a coversheet containing the following:

At the very top (in a very small font) I get:
From Dean Services         
the day and date 
and page 1 of 2.

I believe the above comes from config.ttyS2 file which 
contains "LocalIdentifiers"

Then I get (in a much larger font)

That is the end of the first sheet.

The next sheet is my attachment (a PS file) from my email.

So I added ''X-FAX-Headers: clear''  to hyla.conf

But I still get the 
TO:, FROM:, etc. and more importantly I get two sheets of paper.

BTW I can't find "sendfax" being used anywhere.  I do see in my master.cf

in faxmail.sh

My guess "faxmail-ifax" is the real "faxmail"

Also of interest my "hyla.conf" is in "/etc/hylafax"  
I'm using SUSE 10.2

I can't seem to get rid of the first page.  What do I do next?  I need help!
