I've seen some solutions that involved AV/AntiSpyware/SPAM blocking software, etc. . . . and am certain this isn't relevant here. The faxes are coming in and being routed to a folder without any trouble. It just won't go to the email. I have successfully reached an external mail server via telnet.

I hadn't seen that. I'll run through it tonight and see if that gets it. Thanks.

We walked through this solution and it did not work.  But we have involved Microsoft and they are taking care of it.  Sorry for the delay on updating the question.
