Email routing in Hylafax

Running Hylafax on Debian with two modems connected.
Incoming faxes are routed to email addresses which are specified in /etc/hylafax/FaxDispatch file using the SENDTO directive.
All of the incoming faxes from both of the modems are routed to the email addresses specified in the above file.

I'm looking for a way to route incoming faxes to different email addresses based on the modem used to receive the fax.

For example:
Incoming fax from modem A - route to user1@domain.com and user2@domain.com
Incoming fax from modem B - route to user3@domain com and user4@domain.com

Any ideas how this can be established ?

Thanks.

Hi,

You have to choice to dispatch the incoming fax:

Dispatch based on incoming modem (if you have only one line number per modem, the ttyxx will need to be changed as your device cofig), the script is as follow:

NOTIFY_FAXMASTER=no;
case "$DEVICE" in
      ttyxx)      SENDTO=user1@domain.com,user2@domain.com;      FILETYPE=pdf;;
    ttyyy)      SENDTO=user3@domain.com,user4@domain.com;      FILETYPE=pdf;;
esac

Dispatch based on incoming called number (the xxxx will need to be changed to match your line number last 4 digit), the script is as follow:

case "$CALLIDx" in
      *xxxx)      SENDTO=user1@domain.com,user2@domain.com;      FILETYPE=pdf;;
      *yyyy)      SENDTO=user3@domain.com,user4@domain.com;      FILETYPE=pdf;;
esac

Note that the x in $CALLIDx represent the CallIDPattern instance number in config.ttyxx, IE: the x will be 2 so $CALLID2 in the following modem config case:

ModemResetCmds:         "AT#CID=10"     # enable ANI/DNIS reporting
RingsBeforeAnswer:      0               # collect info between two RINGs
CallIDPattern:          "NMBR = "       # pattern string for calling number
CallIDPattern:          "NDID = "       # pattern string for called number
CallIDAnswerLength:     1

Good luck,

Salah
