The settings should be able to be changed one of two ways. Either under fax settings on the printers menu, or under fax settings under the printer properties panel on the computer.

    It should be under the fax settings menu on the printer, or somewhere under settings on the properties menu on the computer....right click on the printer in its window, select properties, and find the fax settings there

Brother MFC 6800 won't send scan results to iMac. The scan function appears to work, although nothing appears when using iPhoto or Picass for Mac. I am using Mac OX 10.6.5


Hi
I had the same problem. I knew the scan function was not broken because I could use it with my old PowerMacG4. But no go with the new Intel iMac, and no amount of driver updating or other OS fiddling solved anything.
I luckily found another MFC-6800 to test. And to my surprise scanning is working, and printing is much improved (no more "offline printer" when it's clearly online). The difference between the two: firmware version. My MFC is dated from 2001, while the other one is from 2004. For the date see the label behind the machine.
Now, why does scanning work on my old PowerMac G4? Apple probably changed something in the Intel drivers or the USB circuitry, or Brother didn't adhere to proper standards in 2001. Or it may be as stupid as an inability of the older Brother board/firmware to deal with USB 2 levels, even throttled down to USB 1.1. Who knows? Anyway I'm in contact with Brother and hope to get a way to upgrade the firmware in my printer.
Did you try scanning with Graphic Converter? Some Adobe products need updates to properly scan in Snow Leopard.
Hope this help.

How do i change a speed dial number on my brother mfc-7340?


Changes to the contents stored in the address book do not become effective in the stored speed dial numbers in Windows®. Description:If you have made a change to the contents stored in the address book, the speed-dial is NOT automatically updated.

If you change the address book entry, please follow the steps below to store the speed dial number again.
  1. Click on the setup button to open the Brother PC-FAX Setup dialog box.

    Notes:
    You can also access the Brother PC-FAX Setup dialog box by clicking start => Programs => Brother => MFC-XXXX or MFC-XXXX LAN (where XXXX is your model name) => PC-FAX Sending => PC-FAX Setup.

  2. Click the Speed Dial tab.

If you put the patch below, the message that prompts you to confirm the destination number or address will appear when you send a fax using the speed dial. Also the message that indicates changes in the address book do not become effective in the stored speed dial numbers will appear when storing a speed dial.
  1. Make a temporary folder on your HDD [hard disk drive] as the location to save the downloaded self-extracting file, e.g. C:\brodnt
  2. Please click here to download the patch. (7.07MB)
  3. The Brother End-User License Agreement will appear. If you agree to the terms, click I ACCEPT.
  4. Download the file to the temporary folder created in Step 1.
  5. Once downloading is complete, open the folder and double click PCFAXUPD.EXE.
  6. The installation will start. Please follow the on-screen installation directions.

Unable to scan to email with gmail on a Brother MFC-6490CW


Use SMTP relaying. Set up a computer with SMTP relaying. Go into the Remote Setup Program for your Brother MFC and select Setup Server. Use the IP address of that PC in the Server Settings and set Auth for SMTP to None. Worked great for me. This document can help you set it up on the relaying computer/server. http://www.lesolsoncompany.com/InstantKB20/Attachment17.aspx

Feeds multiple pages


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
