Check for the Save Options in scanner settings. If it is in .GIF or .TIFF format the file size obviously increases.  If you change it to .JPEG format it reduces to around 900kb.

How do I reduce scan file size when the resolution is already 200 dpi?

An 8.5 inch wide document scanned at 200 dpi gives you an image that is 1700 pixels wide. This is almost enough to fill a fullHD TV screen at native resolution (1920 pixels wide) which is unnecessary detail. I would use any picture editing programme (many free ones available) to reduce the overall pixel width of your already scanned images by 50 percent. This will automatically reduce the 1MB image to 250k. If you can scan again, use 100 dpi to scan - the result is same; image will be half as wide (and long), and picture file size one quarter of the 200 dpi scan.

You can try to update your printer driver by downloading the Lexmark X7170 driver from the Lexmark website at Select your operating system, download and execute the file.
You can also try to decrease the scan resolution. Launch Lexmark All-In-One Center application on your computer. Select Scan mode > See More Scan Settings > lower the scan resolution value to 200 or 150 dpi. Note: This will decrease the scan file size and affect the scan output.
Or you can use a third party scan software to decrease scan file size. You can search the web for free scan softwares.

When I save a scanned document you increase the file size. Please. Thanks.

Document size can be set before you scan.
Your scanner software should give you options for type of document and resolution settings. If your documents are to large, set resolution lower.
Example, Black and white or greyscale scans are much smaller in size than color documents.
Saving files as jpg will compress the file for storage.
If you have an image editing program you can decrease the size of the file after the scan.

Scanned documents too large

When you scan them, save them as a different type of document. Try saving them as a web document. They will reproduce almost as good and will be a lot smaller in size (bytes, not inches).

Scanning files to large

It's the resolution you are using to scan. Try a lower setting. for documents, 150-200 dpi is fine. That will produce smaller files.

Scanning docs & size of pdf files on Mac w/HP l7680 All-in-one

The scanner produces a "picture" of the document, much as if you laid it flat on a table and took a picture of it with your digital camera. If you did this, your .jpg from the camera would be several hundred K at a minimum - comparable to the file size off the scanner. That's why the file is so big, it contains a picture and not text data - even though it's still a .jpg file.
If you reduce the scan resolution you will save space, but at the expense of legibility of the document image. To get it down to the smallest possible size, you will need to run the scanned image through OCR ( Optical Character Recognition ) into a Word document for example, and then print it out to a .pdf file. If you have a clean source document with few graphics this isn't as difficult as it may seem. Microsoft Office has an excellent OCR process known as Document Imaging. You need to carefully proof read the result but with a clean input Document Imaging is amazingly accurate in Office 2007.
In short, there is no easy solution to your problem.

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.
