Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
On Windows XP and HP 4670 Scanjet, when scanning to email; Outlook Express opens automatically but I have Windows Live mail installed and want it to open instead. How to do ??
Click the Show Menu button, and choose Options; if you see the traditional menus, go to Tools > Options. Both open the Options dialog: under the General tab, which should be selected by default, locate the bottom section, labeled "Default Messaging Program":
If Windows Live Mail is not currently the default email program on Windows, the text next to the first button will read "This application is NOT the default Mail handler". Click the Make Default button, and it will be disabled (grayed out).
Confirming your change of default email clientThe text has now changed to "This application is the default Mail handler".This is a bit misleading, because Windows Live Mail will not becomeyour default email application until you actually have clicked the Ok or Apply button toHP 4670 Scan to email: how to open Windows Live ma - img36wlm.jpg change in configuration.
Soclick Ok (no need to Apply first), and Windows Live Mail's optiondialog will close, integrating your new option choices. It is that easyto make Windows Live Mail your default email program. (If Windows LiveMail was already your default email client, nothing will happen.)

Tips for a great answer:
"Scan to email" feature is dependent upon the TWAIN and MAPI supported applications. TWAIN and MAPI (Message Application Programming Interface) are standards that relate to "Scanning" and "Scan to email" features respectively. Applications have to support these to make use of HP Director. Not all email accounts are MAPI supported applications. The following are the ones which satisfy the MAPI criteria.
Microsoft Outlook Express 6
Microsoft Outlook Express 5
Microsoft Outlook Express 4
Microsoft Outlook 2000
Microsoft Outlook 98
Microsoft Outlook 97
AOL E-mail Version 8
AOL E-mail Version 5
AOL E-mail Version 4
If you are not using any of the above email accounts, you need to configure your email account with Microsoft Outlook/Outlook Express to use this feature. After configuring, you can use the scan to Email feature by perfroming the following steps.
1. Open HP Director/ HP Solution Center.
2. Click Settings -->> Scan Settings & Preferences --->> Scan to... Setup.
3. Select the available destinations and add them to the front panel destinations.
4. While scanning, you will receive a window showing the scan details which contains the section "Where do you want to scan?". Select "Email".
