I use "PaperPort SE" by SoftScan. I scan a document and then click on my "Outlook" icon on the bottom of the page to email it. The software came with a scanner I bought several years ago. However, it works with my Brother MFC 240CN, also.
If you want to download the Brother MFC 420CN manual "Software Users Guide" it will tell you how to use the scanner function. The link is: (It's the fouth one down, and is 4.3MB in size). I hope this helps.

How to scan on brother mfc-240c

Two methods are:

1) Insert a USB Flash drive into the machine.
Select the SCAN function.
Follow the prompts on the display (asking for filetype, etc)

2) With the machine directly connected to a PC via a USB cable you can use the Brother scan software that came with the machine. If you do not have the disc that came with it you can get the software from their website.

Here's a link to Brother's SCAN support section

You can do this through the microsoft word. When you scan your document, your program will ask you where you want your document to go,you can direct it to ms word. you can send your email from microsoft word .easy

Note: it is important to install the software that came with the printer.It is this software you are going to work with to send your scan to ms-word,

Good luck
