[Asterisk-Users] Blank faxes with RxFAX

Hello All,

I have downloaded and installed spandsp and downloaded rxfax, etc and
rebuilt asterisk with app_rxfax.  I have added the following to my

; ${ARG1} - sendto e-mail
exten => s,1,Wait(2)
exten => s,2,Answer
exten =>
exten => s,4,SetVar(EMAILADDR=${ARG1})
exten => s,5,rxfax(${FAXFILE}.tif)
exten => s,6,system(/usr/local/sbin/mailfax ${FAXFILE} ${EMAILADDR}

And everything looks like it is running fine, meaning that I don't seem to
get any errors.

However, all the faxes seem to be blank.  The only references to anything
like this that I could find previously on the list were in regards to 8-byte
tif files.  This doesn't seem to be the same issue, since the files are much
larger (~8k).  I am trying to receive the faxes over a PRI running into a
TE405P.  Any suggestions?  Is anyone using RxFAX successfully in a
configuration like this?  If so, what are you doing differently?  Any help
would be appreciated.
