Hello there hanson10.

Mmmm, when you say "Windows mail", do you mean webmail such as "Windows Live Hotmail"? If yes, then check your default Internet programs options:

Is [Control Panel > "Internet Options" > "Programs" tab > "Email" dropbox] ... {See NOTE} ... reflecting your appropraitely desired choice? If it is, then check any/all configuration/settings modules found within any software associated with your new printer that may have an incorrect setting.

NOTE: I see that you're running Vista. My description above is for XP, as I don't have Vista in front of me right now. I''m pretty sure it's similar verbiage though.

Good luck, and thanks in advance for posting back ...

How to scan a hard copy, and send in an email?


Hello,
Install the Control Center CC3, if it is not already installed. Connect the MFC-5460CN to the computer. Open the CC3 software. Click the Scan button. You will have the choice to Scan to Picture, Scan to OCR, Scan to E-mail, or Scan to file.
You click to E-mail. The MFC scans the document and opens the default E-mail program (Outlook, Outlook Express), attaches the scanned picture and all that is left for you to do is to supply the E-mail address where the document is to be sent.

If you have problems doing that, scan to file then open the E-mail client to create a new message and attach the file you scanned.

Hope it helps.

MFC-5840CN Scan to email. How do it get it to work with gmail


Hi there,
This model does not have the capability to scan to a Web-based email clent. You can, however, configure Outlook Express to work with gmail then this scanner can scan to Outlook Express.
If you would like to do this there are step-by-step instructions here for Outlook Express in Windows XP:

Won't scan


Hi,
I would uninstall the dodgy mydvd program, and use Spybot to clean up the malware it has spread on your system.

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie Brother MFC240c) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.

I have a brother MFC-240C Just bought it Can you give specific directions for scanning documents which I want to e-mail to others. Claude Campbell


I use "PaperPort SE" by SoftScan. I scan a document and then click on my "Outlook" icon on the bottom of the page to email it. The software came with a scanner I bought several years ago. However, it works with my Brother MFC 240CN, also.
If you want to download the Brother MFC 420CN manual "Software Users Guide" it will tell you how to use the scanner function. The link is: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/doc/manual_index.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc420cn_us&type2=-1&flang=English&dlid= (It's the fouth one down, and is 4.3MB in size). I hope this helps.

Brother MFC240C in stallation


The solution for this one's an easy fix. All you have to do is go to brother, click on Product Support, select your country or the nearest one to you, then where it says please enter your model name type in mfc-240c and hit enter. Click where it says MFC-240C and then go to downloads, select drivers, then your operating system, and then your language, and finally, click search. It will bring you to the page with teh drivers for your printer. In the downloads area, you can also download the manuals, the software for your printer, etc.. It's all quite well laid out. Let me know if you run into any problems.
