You first have to save it. Then recall it from that file as an attachment. Or you can cut and paste it. If you do both, they will still get it even if they don't have the program to open mac programs.

My HP Deskjet F4280 all in one scans only to Photo Smart. I need to scan it to documents so I can send documents by email. How do I get it to scan to documents?

You need to install OCR by Iris software. This will allow you to scan and convert it to rich text file (.rtf) /editable text. Some HP AIO like HP c309a have free basic OCR software. you can download c309a full feature driver and software and just get the OCR software.

boberin3, can you please expand your question and give us the full information as there are too many variables for us to give a definitive answer to this question.
please advise what email program for a start and what you are trying to do.
If my thinking about what you're trying to do is correct then I'll have to say you cannot actually scan a document into an email but scan it to your computer and attach it to the email.
If you want the text of a document to be the email then you need to scan it to a word processor, then copy it and paste it into the email or email direct from the word processor if it has that facility and you use an email program such as Outlook.

How can I scan a document into the WorkCentre M20i so that it is emailed as a word document and not a PDF doc. When we scan a document it is emailed as a PDF document.

You can not email documents on word format directly fromt he device.
PDF and image formats such as tiff and jpeg are the only formats you can scan.
A word document is a raw document that as been modified and formated by a specific text processor, in this case MS office. And the decive does not contain this processing capabilities.

How do I scan a document to send as attachment on email?

Using either the controls on the front of the printer or the Canon software that comes with the printer, scan your document. This should open up a dialogue box on your computer showing the image/document you scanned. Save it to a convenient place on your hard drive. Open your email and click 'Attach', and navigate to the file where you saved the document. Double click it and it will attach to your email. Select a recipient and add text to the body if you wish, and then send! If you need more specific instructions, I would use the 'help' toolbar in the software that opens when you scan, and type a search phrase such as 'attach to email'. Hope this helps--

Need to scan a document to a pc or memory stick and be able to manipulate the document after it is scanned. Basically not save it as an image but a document.

You need OCR (optical character recognition) software. If you google OCR you'll find plenty some of it is freeware

Unable to create an email address on a Imagerunner 3220

Hi Keeyan.

Fist you will need a send kit only supplied by your dealer.
If this funcktion is inable follow these steps.

Press the user button(it is the button with the star)
Select system settings,network settings-in network settings go down wit the arrow until you get e-mail/i-fax settings.(If it is not showing here or in tcp/ip settings the send kit might not be enabled)
In e-mail settings enter the smtp server name or ip address(you will find it on your computer in outlook under tools and acounts)
In the email you can enter a email address supplied by your network adminitrator.

If you have a DNS server insert the ip adress of the DNS in TCP/IP settings.
Make sure you IP addres is also correct.

Then you are ready to go

Did you tried with any OCR software to convert the Scanned imaged (jpeg) to Word Documen?.Always if you scan anything to an image, it will scan in JPEG format that will consume lot of memory.Scan with OCR(Optical Character Recognition) Software and that will Convert JPEG to word Document which will fix the problem.
The OCR software that i Recommend is ABBY Fine Reader.
