    As I already mentioned on the mailing list, they're "just a mail MTA+MUA
    in a box"... It is a bit more complex than a printer machine, but...
    It goes anywhere, while the rest simply CANNOT. And a messaging service
    which cannot go anywhere, is not a service which will make the users
    happy, and thus will probably to attract customers.

    This is just a onramp/offramp gateway, and i-fax have it, too.

    Just my personal opinion, without the ietf fax wg chair hat on.
