Re: [hylafax-users] Missing old faxes

It was running in cron.weekly - I overlooked it during the install.  I don't want the old sent faxes to be deleted, so I've changed it to the following..

"faxcron -info 35 -tmp 15 -mode 664 >> /var/log/hylafax/faxcron.log 2>&1"

..and also commented out the "faxqclean" line.

Will that leave all the sent faxes in "/var/spool/hylafax/docq" and all received faxes in "/var/spool/hylafax/recvq"?  If so, is there any issue with doing so?

You need to run 'faxcron'. Look in your cronttabs or in /etc/cron.daily,
