I have several hylafax+mailscanner setups. As long as you set up your 
rulesets correctly so you don't flag faxes as spam (they're usually a 
single image + a few lines of text), you should be OK.

As to the hylafax ports being accessible, I go with Mr. Miyagi in Karate 
Kid II: "Remember, best block, no be there." - I usually only open the 
ports on localhost and on internal nets.
