Re: [hylafax-users] Trouble setting up

FaxDispatch file has 2 things 
1 " FILETYPE=tif; " -----The type of file, which will be converted after receiving fax. This is the file which will be emailed to a user. Normally, we changed tif to pdf, as it is acceptable in all platforms.

2 " SENDTO=FaxMaster; " ---- This line allows you to send the pdf/tiff file to 'FaxMaster' user, generally the default user. This user is mapped to  another system user in "/etc/aliases" file. When you will see the last line of /etc/aliases files, you will see "faxmaster: root". Here you can include your own system user. For instance "faxmaster: root, sumit". Now all the faxes will be emailed to sumit user...

I got the server almost entirely configured safe for the last part. which is the entire reason i am making the server. I want to take all incomming faxs and send them to a specified email address.  When i looked at the documentation on this it wasn't entirely clear :
By using this procedure, the default mail will be sent with the fax image attached to that notification mail.
Create the file etc/FaxDispatch (usually /var/spool/hylafax/etc/FaxDispatch) so that it contains the following lines:

The part im not understanding is the "faxmaster" line. is that simply replaced with the email address i want the
pdf or tif files to go to?
