pollrcvd(8) HylaFAX script for delivering facsimile received by polling


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


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:
the electronic mail address of the user that submitted the poll request.
the pathname of the received TIFF file relative to the root of the spooling hierarchy.
The communication identifier associated with the call (used to include a transcript when an error occurs).
the modem device on which the document was received.
an error message that is non-null if an error was encountered during the receive operation.


The default script delivers facsimile as PostScript wrapped in MIME.
