You can send *and* receive faxes on your Unix system through HylaFAX (and HylaFAX is free)!!!
Although we use HylaFAX in our office as a send-only system, you can receive faxes too. Let

I´ll post this letter in the SAMBA-digest again, but also I´ll post it in the Hylafax-digest. 
Some people there can surely tell you more about HylaFAX.

If you´ve got problems - don´t hesitate to mail me again.
