But how does hylafax or sendfax know this email address? If I specify
%email_f sendfax takes my email address anmeyer@xxxxxxx from some place
I cannot think of. This email-address is not placed in my System anywhere
or in a place I cannot find. It is not defined in /etc/passwort nor in any
configuration-file of hylafax. Where does this information come from?
