Try adding *99 in front of the number you dial. Beyond that there
isn't much you can do. You can try an internet fax gateway though,
that might be cheaper and more reliable.

I read usenet for the articles.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: In addition to *99 in front of the
number, add '#' as a terminator at the end to eliminate any time-outs
wich may be wasting a few seconds in the dialing process. PAT]
