So, I setup an Operator a while ago that fax - email worked perfect. Then I changed the SMTP server it was using to send emails and forgot to update it.

In the logs I see a lot of invalid attempts to send email. So I SSH into the server to download all the old faxes and they are not in /var/spool/operator/fax.

Does it delete them if it can't successfully send? If not, where does it put them?

Thanks!

Unfortunately, any leftover files in /var/spool/operator/fax are deleted after 24 hours.

Hmm, can this be changed? What if a SMTP is down? Or in my case, misconfigured? I think if faxes are successfully sent, its ok to delete, but if not, don't delete them, and provide the option to send all when SMTP is fixed? Or just let us SSH in and grab the PDFs?

Thoughts?

Eventually, you do have to do something with them. They will end up just consuming disk endlessly if someone isn't paying attention.

Another option would be to send all undelivered faxes to the administrator's email, but that also presumes proper configuration. If you do allow for faxes to stay via option or default, you would still want to limit how many you keep around. I guess a little buffer is better than no buffer.

Why not have a ability to see how much "fax" data is being used? Similar to users' voicemails, or under system health the amount of space logs take up?
