hi experts

i have pbx in a flash installed in a vm and serving me faithfully for few months.
i now want to add fax functionality to it.

however i don't have a fax machine.
so i want my pbif box to receive fax and send it to my email address.
i believe this is possible as other have done it.

currently, my logs show that fax is being received but destionation is "s" which i mean stand for "can't send it anywhere as i don't know where to send it"

here is the actual log entry
2012-09-16 21:35:27            1347845727.9307      SIP      289XXXXXX      905XXXXXX      ReceiveFAX      s            ANSWERED      00:36

i also saw actual fax message in the /var/spool/mqueue which strenthens my belief that i can receive fax just can't send it out via email due to config issue.

please shower me with your abundant kindness and enlighten my soul.

thanks experts

    Have you looked at at the install-incredfax2.  

    I have used it a couple of times and the PIAF guys have done another great job of packing a complex animal.
