There seem to be some use of faxes as a method of communicating with
certain of our ministries, especially in Africa. I haven't tracked
down why they consider this superior to email yet. It might be
cultural or it might be related to paying for time in an internet
cafe. I'm just guessing. :-) I know in at least once case that we send
an email and get the response by fax.
