You could set up an alias on the email server that you are sending the
message to that pipes the message to a daemon or process which is the
fax server and extracts the number from say the subject line and faxes
it on. This is pretty much what we do at work except on a large scale so
we use a database for each order and depending on the destination media
(fax or email) the table is looked up then sent to the appropriate local
