We (work) fax out stuff all the time, and the process goes like this:
convert from text to ps to group 3 tiff and then send. As far as the
software used, we use some custom scripting around some linux-based fax
software (the scripting takes care of retries, archiving, etc). I'm
sorry I don't know the low-level package name (Dan?), but that's the
hoops we go through....
