Ruben, it wasn't until the posting to *this* list that you revealed you 
were using efax.  And that changes everything.

Yes, with efax you would probably have to do that, since it doesn't seem 
to have much coverpage capability on the server side.

OK, it only now becomes apparent that of the three pieces of software 
you indicated to me that you were running, Hylafax (yes, I looked back 
in my saved E-mails, and you *did* mention Hylafax), printfax.pl, and 
Respond, you aren't actually using any of them.

Anyway, if you want to stick with efax, it looks like you need someone 
who can do you up a port monitor, like WHFC uses, a Windows application 
to take user input, like WHFC does, and write up a bunch of postscript. 
  I'm guessing, by the way.

WHFC sounds like a really good starting point; it's GNU-licensed.  I 
don't have the MS C compiler it needs, however, so I'm not interested.

Please, someone take this job and get this guy out of my hair!
