[VoiceOps] Fax ATAs/devices

This is why we can't have nice things.  From a customer:

Also - Kathy will often fax client docs to us so we can in turn forward
them on to her by email.  Time sheets for payroll are faxed to us weekly -
certainly every week by group recruiter Jackie.

Someone is going to a multi-function machine, faxing the docs to her own
company, so they can in turn forward the fax e-mail to her.  The mind
reels.  And then another employee is using her MFP (to be super clear, you
know, those machines that scan and then send it either by fax or e-mail) to
send a document to coworkers in another office.  She uses fax, which is
converted to e-mail, instead of just e-mailing it.

I give up on humanity.
