Email to FAX fails repeatedly

I have tried to send both valid .jpg and .pdf file attachments from two different registered email accounts today and keep getting the following unsucessful error message.

Unfortunately, your Email to Fax request to fax number 02xxxxxxxx on 25-10-2011 at 10:29:17 has failed due to:
- An invalid attachment

One attachment I tried to send was Exetel's own email to fax faq.pdf Is this not valid enough?

Is the service working?

I have checked this with our developers and they have confirmed that currently there is no issues with the service.

This error message may occur due to, an issue with the email client or non standard pdf generators. Is it possible for you to test this with a different email client :?:
