pollrcvd - HylaFAX program for delivering facsimile received by polling
/var/spool/hylafax/bin/pollrcvd mailaddr faxfile devid commid error-msg
bin/pollrcvd is the program invoked by the HylaFAX server whenever a
facsimile is received as a result of a polling operation. It is
designed to be customizable by the administrator. (Ideally this is
done by creating a customized pollrcvd program in a different filename
or by copying the default program to a different filename, customizing
that new file, and then using PollRcvdCmd in the modem config file to
point faxgetty(8C) at the customized program. See hylafax-config(5F).)
The default program uses electronic mail to deliver the facsimile to
the user that submitted the poll request. The arguments are:
mailaddr the electronic mail address of the user that submitted the
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.
The default program delivers facsimile as PostScript wrapped in MIME.
This program can be customized for the intended receipient. To do this
create a shell script etc/PollDispatch in the spooling area that sets
BCCTO controls the blind copy recipient of the received fax notifica‐
tion. It is given as an e-mail address.
CCTO controls the copy recipient of the received fax notification.
It is given as an e-mail address.
LANG controls the localization of the text of the received poll noti‐
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.
