I think that the fact it's ADSL may be less relevant than the
*sending* number or -- more specifically -- the Chipset of *their*
faxmodem and its compatability with yours?

I'd be interested to see if the problem is replicated if these senders
sent faxes to one of your other (fault-free) clients' numbers ...

The only ADSL-related aspect I can think of woudl be if the
Microfilter is faulty. But you say you've already replaced it.

Very puzzling!
