    I have a very large Microsoft Word file that I need to be able to fax.
    It's 12 pages long, but there are lots of graphics and the Microsoft Word
    file size is just a shade under 10 megabytes.
    However, the transmission is unsuccessful, and it
    appears to be due to a timeout somewhere.
    The e-mailed message I got from sendfax is as follows:
    Your facsimile job to 434-6994 was not sent because document conversion
    to facsimile failed.  The output from the converter program was:
    [Job time limit exceeded]
    Check any PostScript documents for non-standard fonts and invalid constructs.
    As I was writing this note, I went to send two more faxes that were
    considerably shorter ... the Postscript files are 731,866 bytes and 986,691
    bytes.  These two failed as well, with the same failure message.
    Smaller files, generating Postscript files up to about 500K bytes, seem to
    go out fine.
    I looked over the docs on the Web and couldn't find anywhere where one can
    set a timeout time.  Is this a compile time option or something?  Can anyone
    give me a hand in getting Hylafax set up with more liberal timeouts?

Just read man hylafax-config(4F) for PostScriptTimeout:
