Why are you putting email in the middle of this? Seems like it'd be
easier (and cheaper) to just hang a modem and phone line on the
server and send the faxes directly.

No, I can't point to any specific resource on setting this up, but such
a thing existed in the early '90s at Sun -- we used it to fax orders from
our workstations to a highly-regarded burrito joint in Mountain View :-)
