I don't find it clear from your message what exactly it is that you want
to do, but I notice the subject is "Asterisk" which may give a clue.

What sort of "message" are you talking about and how are you proposing
to receive the fax?  Why can't you then just e-mail yourself in the
usual way?  Are you proposing to use the modem to establish the
connection in order to e-mail yourself, or is the modem to do the job of
receiving the fax (or both)?

Assuming it's a fax modem, I'd just use Hylafax to drive it and
configure that to e-mail me each fax as it comes in.  Then however I
wonder where Asterisk comes in to your question?

Give us a few more details about what you have and what you want to do
and I'll stop my ramblings.
