Vsifax to email

Hi,
My apologies if this is a stupid question. :)
I have vsifax running on HP10.20 and it
works fine most of the time.

Ive been asked to send some faxes to email.
So the data leaves my unix box via vsifax and
lands in someones inbox instead of at a fax machine.

How do I go about doing this?
Any pointers would be much appreciated.

many thanks

Luke

Luke,

for i in `echo filename1 filename2 filename3 ...`
do
uuencode $i $i.ZZZ
done|mailx -m -s "test" username@whereever.com


Replace ZZZ with the appropriate suffix so the receiver will know what application to use. IE for text messages use "txt", for pdf use "pdf".

Thanks Harry.

Vsifax is set up to output faxes straight
from our ERP system. Its these outputs
that I want vsifax to send as email.

Is there a way of configuring vsifax to
send faxes as emails without involving
a separate script do you know?

yes, because we do that, but I have no clue as to who even administers the damn thing.
