In addition to Markus' suggestions you could also look at using iaxmodem 
and Hylafax. I've been using that for years and it works great. Once a 
fax is received it is emailed to whatever you configure.
Sending faxes works too in libreOffice. If you have a bunch of DIDs you 
could give people their own direct line and fax number.
