Re: the tiff3g files seem to be compress in ~~/fax

After some digging I found it in the advanced-setup html, here is the 

Transcoding of Received Facsimile

Transcoding refers to the on-the-fly conversion of encoded data.
HylaFAX supports transcoding of received facsimile so that received
documents can be stored in files using an optimal compression
algorithm. If the RecvDataFormat configuration parameter is set it
defines the format for writing received facsimile data, one of: ``1-D
MR'', ``2-D MR'', ``2-D MMR'', or ``adaptive''. An ``adaptive'' format
is the default; it causes the received data to be written using the
data format negotiated by the sender and receiver. Using 

     RecvDataFormat: "2-D MMR"

gives the most space-efficient data format. Note that RecvDataFormat
defines the encoding of the page data, not the file format: this is
always TIFF. 

Hope this helps,
