Each fax to be transmitted is assigned the current value of parameters specified on the command line; e.g. whether or not to generate a cover page. This means that options that specify parameters for a particular destination must pre- cede the dialstring specified with the -d option. For example, sendfax -n -d 5551212 /etc/passwd submits a fax to 5551212 that has no cover page while sendfax -d 5551212 -n /etc/passwd In other words, you'd better put the -d 'Someone@14283342080' AFTER all the other switches.
