I am attempting to setup what I think anyone who uses hylafax would consider a very basic setup. I simply want to have faxs come in and be converted to pdf and emailed to me. I followed the tutorial on the hylafax.org site and successfully setup the fax server within ubuntu. What I dont know how to do is configure it to send the faxs to an email after it gets them. Does anyone know what they are doing in hylafax?

edit:
So I searched hi and low and found this thread:
http://ubuntuforums.....hlight=hylafax

which led me to these directions:

"Create the file etc/FaxDispatch (usually /var/spool/hylafax/etc/FaxDispatch) so that it contains the following lines:

FILETYPE=tif;
SENDTO=FaxMaster;

Substitute pdf or ps for tif as you desire. "


Does this mean I just put the email address I want the faxs to go to in place of "FaxMaster"?
