Well, untested of course as I am busy with school:) But what I wrote up to try at
Christmas (with your addition) was:

<extension name="OutboundFax">
  <condition field="caller_id_number" expression="^204$"/>
  <condition field="destination_number" expression="^(\d+)$"/>
      <action application="answer"/>
      <action application="playback" data="silence_stream://2000"/>
      <action application="rxfax" data="/tmp/${uuid}.rxfax.tiff"/>
      <action application="system" data="/opt/freeswitch/scripts/emailfax.sh $1 at fax.com /tmp/${uuid}.rxfax.tiff"/>
      <action application="hangup"/>

Am I correct in presuming that Freeswitch will answer a fax from a local zap based user
just like it does from an FXO port connected to a POTS line? What I hope to do here is
catch any call made from that extension (the zap based fax machine/user) and push its
call into the fax module.

Thanks for taking the time to help!
