A law firm needs a way to automate faxes everynight. These faxes are going to the same fax numbers and contain the same attachments. Is there any piece of software or any way that anyone knows of?

GJ,
I dont know if this will get you all the way to what you want...but maybe its a start.  In my previous company we used a fax server by GFI.  This fax server allowed you to print documents directly to the server.  As long as the fax number was on the document then it would send the fax to the correct location.  I think that it pretty standard functionality for fax servers.  So we created a word document that had all of the information and in the header had the fax number and printed it to the fax server.
Now in our case we already had a system that printed the documents when we wanted them to be printed.
Let me know if that helps or maybe some additional specifics about what capabilities you have in your environment.

Theres is open source fax software called HylaFAX, i'm meant to be implementing it in our organisation but haven't started to learn it.

I plan to run it on CentOS with two fax cards.

The old software that this organisation uses is called Pulse by Esker Software. It works but the company has since closed down (Pulse was written in the 90's!!)
