       faxrcvd - HylaFAX notification script for received facsimile


       /var/spool/hylafax/bin/faxrcvd  qfile devid commid error-msg [ callid-1
       [ callid-2 [ ...  [ callid-n ] ] ] ]


       bin/faxrcvd is the command  script  invoked  by  the  facsimile  server
       whenever  a facsimile is received.  The default script sends electronic
       mail to the FaxMaster user describing the content of the facsimile  and
       other useful information such as the time spent receiving the document.
       The arguments are:

       qfile     the pathname of the received TIFF file relative to  the  root
                 of the spooling hierarchy.

       devid     the modem device on which the facsimile was received.

       commid    the communication identifier for the inbound call.

       error-msg an error message that is non-null if an error was encountered
                 during the receive operation.

       callid    the value of various identification indicators from the call


       This script can route facsimile directly to the intended recipient.  To
       do this create a shell script etc/FaxDispatch in the spooling area that
       sets SENDTO to the receiver's electronic mail address.  For example,

       case "$SENDER" in
       *1*510*526*1212*) SENDTO=sam;;          # Sam's test rig in Berkeley
       *1*415*390*1212*) SENDTO=raster@asd;;   # 7L Xerox room, used for scanning
       *5107811212)      SENDTO=peebles@mti;;  # stuff from home
       case "$DEVICE" in
       ttyS1)            SENDTO=john;;         # all faxes received on ttyS1
       ttyLT0)           SENDTO=mary@home;;    # all faxes received on ttyLT0
       case "$CIDNUMBER" in
       435*)        SENDTO=lee; FILETYPE=pdf;; # all faxes from area code 435
       5059627777)  SENDTO=amy; FILETYPE=tif;; # Amy wants faxes in TIFF
       case "$SUBADDR" in
       53)          SENDTO=FaxMaster;;         # without double-notification
       roger)       SENDTO=roger;;             # possible text subaddressing

       Note that you must match any embedded white space.  The facsimile  will
       be sent as a MIME-encoded PostScript document as default.

              is equivalent to the nth call identification parameter

              is equivalent to CALLID2 above.

              is equivalent to CALLID1 above.

       DEVICE is equivalent to device above.

              controls the filetype of the image attachment.  Current filetype
              options are ``ps'', ``tif'', and ``pdf''.  Multiple  values  may
              be  specified by separating them with whitespace. In that case a
              separate attachment is created for each filetype.

              controls the sender of the received  fax  notification.   It  is
              given as an e-mail address.

       MSG    is equivalent to error-msg above.

              (an  underscore ``_'' character is between NOTIFY and FAXMASTER)
              indicates whether or not the  HylaFAX  administrator  should  be
              notified  regarding  incoming facsimile.  Default is ``always''.
              Also available are ``never'', which  means  to  never  send  any
              received  facsimile notification, and ``errors'', which means to
              send notification only if there were reception errors.

       SENDER is the received TSI of the fax sender.

       SENDTO controls the recipient of the received fax notification.  It  is
              given  as  an  e-mail  address,  and  it's  value will be passed
              directly to the MTA for delivery as well as being inserted  into
              the  email.   If  you  want  to  send to multiple receipients in
              seperate messages set the variable SENDTO1...SENDTOn in addition
              to  SENDTO.   faxrcvd  will process additional SENDTOn variables
              starting at 1, and stopping at the first empty SENDTOn  variable
              it  finds.   The templates should continue to reference $SENDTO,
              and faxrcvd will  make  sure  it  get's  set  correctly  as  the
              template is processed for each one.

              the  received  subaddress  value, communicated by the sender for
              post-reception routing purposes

              the template subdirectory to use when sending e-mails.   HylaFAX
              ships   with   a   base   set  of  templates,  and  some  direct
              translations.  To  use  the  German  translated  templates,  set
              TEMPLATE=de  in  FaxDispatch.   This  is  relative  to  the base
              template directory.

       Other shell  variables  are  available.   Consult  the  faxrcvd  script
