NAME

pollrcvd - HylaFAX script for delivering facsimile received by polling

SYNOPSIS

/var/spool/hylafax/bin/pollrcvd mailaddr faxfile devid commid error-msg

DESCRIPTION

bin/pollrcvd is the command script invoked by the HylaFAX server whenever a facsimile is received as a result of a polling operation. The default script uses electronic mail to deliver the facsimile to the user that submitted the poll request, and can be controlled by editing the etc/PollDispatch shell script in the spooling area that is sourced by pollrcvd when it runs. The arguments are:
mailaddr
the electronic mail address of the user that submitted the poll request.
faxfile
the pathname of the received TIFF file relative to the root of the spooling hierarchy.
commid
The communication identifier associated with the call (used to include a transcript when an error occurs).
devid
the modem device on which the document was received.
error-msg
an error message that is non-null if an error was encountered during the receive operation.

NOTES

The default script delivers facsimile as PostScript wrapped in MIME.
