|HylaFAX The world's most advanced open source fax server|
The converters solution seems to apply to earlier versions of hylafax, but not hylafax 6.0 versions. From what I’ve read, I need to get html2ps, and get it to work with hylafax. However, all the threads I’ve seen on this, show people still getting the html source code sent along with the fax.
Has anyone found a way to prevent html source from being sent when using email to fax with an html client, or is this something I need hylafax+ for?
The PDF and Tiff converters are required, they are just already set up. Check your /etc/hylafax/faxmail directory (that’s where they were for me) and you should have the PDF tiff and octet-stream converters there. You just need to create the html one.
You also need to point to the converters using your faxmail.conf file.
So the article says it only applies to earlier versions of hylafax, and that faxmail hands these formats natively. Did that change only apply to tiff and pdf attachment conversion, and not html? Tiff and pdf currently work as expected for me, without having setup a converter. Making a converter isn’t a problem, I just want to be sure it won’t throw errors on tiff and pdf attachment conversion, which works fine now.
You need to set up an HTML mimetype converter. The proper method is indicated here:
When sending mail to fax using postfix, hylafax+ 5.4.2, and mail2fax, I get the body of the email and the html formatting.
For example, if my email body is “test 1”, the fax cover looks like this:
<Test 1 </b>>
Anyone know a way to remove the html part and just get the body? Perhaps tweaking to the mail2fax.sh script?
