Scanned files fail to attach to emails, it says attachment failed every time.


okay, let me try this again. Scan the documents to a file on your computer and save them, then attach them to your email. it's possible either the email program/provider does not allow the attachment type you're trying to send. it's also possible that the file you're trying to send is too large. normally it will tell you if it's too large though. i'd try to scan the file to pdf and send it that way.

How to scan documents to an email address


you should first right click on yoru destop and find "NEW" click on "make new folder", then type a name for the folder (anything you want). Now go to your scanner software and find the preferences and tell it to save scanned documents to your NEW folder. another option is to simply scan a document and when its done, click "file, save as" and save it to your new folder. When you are done scanning, open your email program and type in the email address to where you want to send the documents. when you are done typing the "subject" and a short note to whomever the mail is too, go to "insert" or "attachments" (varies depending on you email program). find the folder with your documents in it and hold down the "Cntrl"key and then click each file you wish to include. then click "ok" and all the files should now be attached to your email. BE AWARE, there may be a limit to how much data you can include in your email. If your email provider rejects your message due to file size being too large, simply send the files one at a time in multiple emails. There are also options out there (too numerous to list) that will allown you to send large files that are too big for your email program. I hope I haven't confused you. Good luck

How do i scann something and send it as a email?


If you have a Windows operating system on your computer (XP Vista, etc.,) place the document you want to scan on your scanner and turn your scanner on.

Then,go to:
Start > All Programs > Accessories > Paint

1) When the Paint program opens, (on the toolbar at the top of the program) click on, 'File' then scroll down and click on, 'From Scanner or Camera'.

2) Click on the icon for your scanner, then click, 'OK'.

3) Click, 'Scan'.

4) The document will be scanned and imported into the paint program automatically.

5) Then, (again) click on, 'File' (in the toolbar) and select, 'Save As' > (name your document) > select a file on your computer to save the document in (for example: Pictures).

6) Log into your email account.

7) Click, N
'New' or 'Compose' (whichever applies) and compose (type) your email.

8) Then locate the word or option that reads, 'Attachment' (which will usually have a small icon of a paperclip by the side of it) and click on the word 'Attachment'.
(a window will open)

9) Find the button in the window that reads: 'Browse'. Click on the 'Browse' button and locate the file where your scanned document was saved > and click on it. (this should attach the file to your email.)

For large documents and files, if your email provider doesn't allow large documents or files, you can email them with yahoo. After composing your email, look to (your) bottom left of the page you are going to email and click on, 'Attach Large Files'

- you'll have to click, 'Accept the first time' then attach your file and click, 'Send'. That's all there is to it.

I scanned a document, but when I go to attach the file, it stays in attaching files forever??


Greg, Do you mean that when you want to send it by email it keeps attaching the file forever? If yes then check the size of the scanned document. What happens is that the moment you attach a document to an email Windows start sending it to the email server and that takes time as uploading is slower than downloading. And if the file a large one as scanned documents can be, then it will take that much longer. Try a smaller document first. Size wise small document. If that works fine then you can try larger documents. yes it may be time consuming but there is no price for mental satisfaction. To reduce the size of the scanned document, reduce the pixels in settings of the scanner. or reduce the page size. You will find the document reduced many times over.

Trying to scan document on HP Deskjet F4200 all in one series. When scanning small document from TIFF Image this is scanning through as 25.5 MB so I am unable to send this as an attachement to an email as...


Try lowering your scan resolution settings. Magazine quality is 300dpi. If you don't want to lose too much quality, open the file is a image editor and crop only the area you wish to send.

When I scan one page, in the document info it show the size of the file to b : 13.66 MB or 29MB


This is not an issue with your printer, this is an issue with your email provider. It's telling you that the file size is too big to be sent by your email provider.

You can check with your email provider to see if they can increase the size that attachments are allowed to be, but that is no guarantee that the person you are sending to can receive files when they are that big.

The best solution is to either scan at a lower resolution, or use a more compressed file format. If you're not doing so already, scan to a .jpg file format. If that still does not work, try reducing the scan resolution... start at 600dpi, then maybe go down 100dpi at a time until it is small enough to send.
