Re: Why can't I scan to email attachment?
Without wishing to quote the obvious but: make sure you computer is turned on and your email program is active. Also check your email program is identified in the printer settings. If you are working on wifi, you may find that the scan to network (and e-mail) function is not supported and will need to be cable connected to your computer.

You either download the warranty form to the computer and then attach to the email. Or you can copy and past it to a word processing application. Or you can press CTRL+P and print it, then scan it to PDF. You could also Screenshot it to a jpg and attach that..
There isn't an easy way because Safari is just a browser.
Operate the scanner from the computer not the printer.
Have you loaded the MP Navigator progam from the cd supplied with the printer?
If not, do that first and then follow the steps below.
Double click MP Navigator icon on desktop.
Choose "custom scan with one click "
Save to pc. (" attach to email "only works on windows mail)
Open saved location and rename.
Write your email & click on insert drop down box
Click on "pictures inline "
Open MP Navigator folder
Choose scanned item by name
Click on open box
Scan will appear under the text in your email.
Place your document face down on the scanner bed. Press the button that starts the scanning process depending on your scanner or printer.
Save the scanned file to your computer by clicking "File" in the menu bar at the top of the screen, then choose "Save as." Choose the folder in which you wish to save the document from the drop-down menu in the window that popped up during the saving process. Choose a name for the document, then click "Save."
Sign on to your email account, then choose "New" or "Compose" to start a new email message. Click on "Attachments" or "Attach." Wait for a new window to pop up, then choose the file you scanned from the folder where you saved the document.
Wait a few seconds for the file to attach, compose your email message, then click "Send." Your scanned document will now be sent to the recipient's email address.
Place the document that is going to be scanned face down on
the scanner. Press the "Scan" button that can be located on the scanner.
Another way to perform a scan is to click on "Start," then go to "All
Programs." Move the mouse pointer up to "Accessories." Go down to
"Scanner and Camera Wizard."
Click on "Scanner and Camera Wizard." Click "Next." You will
be asked to choose a preference. Choose a preference, then click on
"Preview" to preview the document.
Click on "Next" after previewing. Type a picture name and the
destination where you want to save it. Click on "Next." The document
will start to scan. Click "Finish" to complete the scan.
Go to your email account. Click "Compose" to start a new
email. Look for "Attach File" and click on the "Browse" button across
from it. The "Choose File" window will open up.
Go to the destination where you saved the scanned document.
Choose the name of the scanned document. Click on it to open up the
file, then click on "Open."
Add the necessary information in the subject line and the
body of the email. Click on "Send" to complete the process. The document
will be sent as an attachment file.
Some programs have options for sending scans in emails, but there is always the good old fashioned way. Scan your document to a desktop folder, or it's default folder. Then open your email and send the scan as an attachment to the email. It's a two-step process, but it gets it there.
Good luck, thanks for using FixYa, and please rate this if it helped.
Was this function working fine before? When you choose Scan => To Email, what the device actually do is launch the scanning software and scan it and save to temporary folder THEN open your default OUTLOOK email account and creates a new mail with the scanned file attached to it. So it could be a scanning software error or low in memory since the process requires an amount of memory.
So you better try to Scan => To File and see if the scanning completes. If you have problem with it, then try to reinstall the program of your printer and scanner in one.
If you select these options on your printer, you must have an application on your computer that will process the results of the scan. You can scan to a file for processing of an application like photoshop. Your email program must be able to handle the file format you scan in. In either case, you will be asked which application will be used to process the file or email attachment.
