Yes.  Trivial

Off the top of my head:

exten => 12125551212,1,Set(EMAIL=john.doe at example.com)
exten => 12125551212,n,Answer
exten => 12125551212,n,Wait(4)
exten => 12125551212,n,Dial(SIP/1212)

exten => fax,1,ReceiveFax(/tmp/myfax.tiff)
exten => fax,n,AGI(yourfax2emailagi.php,${FAXEXTEN},${EMAIL})

The Answer and Wait are required for faxdetection to work.

	Using Asterisk 1.8.mumble.  We would like to use fax detect on demand.
	Both chan_dahdi and chan_sip support setting fax detetect on a static basis,

For curiosity's sake, could you make it work first using static settings ?

	but no way I've been able to find to enable/disable it on demand in the dialplan.
	In 1.4 we used the NVFaxDetect 3rd party app, but that no longer appears to be maintained.
	Does anyone have any suggestions?
