How do i scan and email documents

There should be a way to select "send by email" when you finish scanning a document on the computer. Or you can usually attach the document to your email from the program you use to send emails. You may have to save the document first.

How to scan and send document

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.

Bothers MCF-490CW 4 in 1 || scanner - when scanning multiple pages, what must I do so when I send as an attachment the attachment is one group instead of each individual sheet?

Create a WORD document then paste each images on a page, save the Word document and then send this Word document as an attachment in your e-mail.
If you do net want to send the Word document then you can create a PDF of the Word document and send the PDF file as an attachment.

When you scan a document it must be scanned with OCR software. The default scanning method will scan a document as a picture, not a document with letters and words. The OCR software will recognize the letters and put the scanned document in the proper format to open it with MS Word. The software that you scan with should have a setting for OCR, read your instructions or help files to get the details if you can not find them very easy in the software you use for scanning. .

The problem with using Outlook may be that you have not set it up properly to get your emails from your email server. You do not need to use Outlook or Outlook express to send any documents, you can use your web based email server if you like, but you can use Outlook Express as well. You just need to add the document to send as an attachment to the email.

To set up Outlook Express to get your email, you must first find out what the POP3 and SMTP setting you must use. You can get that information from your email provider, it is different for every email provider. Then you go to the "File" menu at the top left of Outlook Express and select "Identities" and select "Add New Identity" and from there you will go thru a wizard to guide you thru the process of setting up your email client. Just make sure you have the POP3 and SMTP settings available for you to put into Outlook Express when prompted to in the wizard.

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.
