1.3.1

Aids fax by email in Panther.

Overview

FaxEmailHelper fixes some installation problems which prevent forwarding of faxes by email from working in Mac OS X 10.3. It also lets you configure the email address from which the forwarded fax comes, to specify an SMTP server to use for forwarding and to test the configuration by simulating the arrival of a fax.

Very easy to install. Works like a charm. Now I know a fax has come in without checking the Faxes folder.

Version 1.1.3 comes with Technical Notes which describe exactly what FaxEmailHelper does and why in excruciating detail - in the hope that Apple will make the necessary fixes to make FaxEmailHelper completely unnecessary. Anyone running a sendmail email server on their machine (you'll know if you are) should read the Technical notes

In answer to the question - what is the main.cf file? Beginning with 10.3, OS X has includes the postfix mailserver software, which enables your Mac to be a fully fledged mailserver. main.cf is the configuration file for this mailserver. Forwarding of faxes by email in Panther has been designed to make use of this mailserver software. You should note that standard email clients, Mail.app, Eudora, Entourage do not make use of the builtin mailserver (though you can configure them to do so if you wish). They interact with the mailserver you specify as the incoming and outgoing mailserver when setting up your accounts. In many circumstances, the default settings in main.cf will not work. For instance, if you do not have a static, publicly verifiable DNS entry, most other mailservers will bounce messages sent using the built-in mailserver. FEH will not alter your main.cf file if you leave the outgoing mail server field blank. If your main.cf file is different in any way from the file that ships with OSX 10.3, version 1.1.3 and later of FEH will not modify main.cf until you have given explicit permission for it to do so.
