Sorry if I did not make it clear. If faxgateway-domain is NOT running
sendmail and presumably knows how to handle addresses of the above form then
you are correct. Sendmail servers intermediate between the user and the
faxgateway-domain do not need any special rules.
If, on the other hand, faxgateway-domain is running sendmail then that
sendmail needs to be configured so that it knows the message is to be
delivered by a fax delivery agent (which will interprete the fax=faxnumber
part) and not to try to deliver it to a local user called "fax=faxnumber".

We try, Claudio, we try.
