fax Fax sends text files via a DCE faxbox. It uses two queues, out and occ, under another queue in spool. A banner can be applied to each new file which can be either a file header or a fax cover sheet. Each page will have a page heading giving the source and page number. If a destination is busy, files are automatically sent to the occupied queue (occ) and retried at the a further 5 times at 10 minute intervals as per CCITT specs. If it still has not gone the file is 'woopsed' to the intercept queue for the system operator to handle.
