I second this. Efax is small, light and very dependable. It's author
(Ed Casas) and maintainer (Dirk Eddelbuettel) are both very responsive
about fixing problems quickly.

One piece of advice: if you choose to install it, you should install
the version in unstable (`woody'). There is a problem with certain US
Robotics modems in the version in stable which is fixed in the version
in `woody'. This version installs smoothly on potato systems (or did
on mine anyway),
