       recvq/fax* - received facsimile document format


       Facsimile  received  by  HylaFAX  are  placed  in  the recvq subdirectory.  Each facsimile
       document is stored as a single Class F Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) file.  This  format
       includes the following information:
              • page width and length
              • horizontal and vertical resolution
              • page orientation
              • phone number of the sender
              • date and time document was received
              • number of scanlines received with errors
              • maximum number of consecutive scanlines received with errors
              • whether or not bad scanlines were regenerated by the receiver
              • make and model of the modem used to receive the document
              • name of the host computer on which the document was received

       Image data is written using either CCITT T.4 or CCITT T.6 compression.  By default data is
       written using the compression scheme/data format negotiated by the  sender  and  receiver.
       However,  if  faxgetty(8)  is  configured to do copy quality checking then data is written
       using the compression scheme defined by the RecvDataFormat  configuration  parameter;  see

       A  scanline  that  is  regenerated by the receiver because of an error is typically just a
       copy of the previous good scanline.

       The files in the recvq directory are created with the protection  mode  specified  in  the
       server  configuration  file(s).  By default, files are created with mode 0600 and owned by
       the fax user, which means that they are accessible only to the fax user.

       To print a facsimile on a POSTSCRIPT® printer, the fax2ps(1) program can be used.
