Hi this is kamal....

pls read and do these steps carefully.. definitely u will get solution..


SCAN DIRECTLY TO E-MAIL FROM THE MACHINE- The direct "scan to e-mail" function was the hardest thing to setup. You have to have an actual POP e-mail address for your scanner, which is how it sends PDFs or JPGs of TIF files directly from the box. Getting an e-mail account setup is simple enough, but the control panel won't recognize the servers by name, for example standard pop mail server names list POP.GMAIL.COM. Instead you have to actually convert the server names into IP addresses (I found a website somewhere that did this) and insert that IP address into the control panel.

Once setup, the scan-to-email function works just as you'd expect. But it requires way too many key strokes on the machine to actually send the document. "Are you sure, Are you really sure, Are you really really sure?" (not exact quotes, but you get the idea)

I'm in my late-twenties with a background in the tech field, yet programming this direct-to-email function had me cussing and pulling my hair out. I imagine most people will setup the network scanning application and stop there. The network scanning application is actually a lot more versitile than the direct scan-to-email, even though it requires you to have your computer turned on. But using the network scanning the document just appears, then you can forward it to whatever e-mail you want via your computer (and keep your hair).
best regards

How do I use my Scan feature and send the image by e-mail?


If your drivers are instaled correctly, the BROTHER Control Center working fine, and you have setup a mail account in say OUTLOOK or another e-mail software, you can scan to e-mail.
Put the document on the flatbed or the ADF, open the Control Center. Select the Scan function, and the Scan to email option.
The document will be scanned, the e-nail software will open, inviting you to enter the email address. that is all it takes.

I have a lexmark 464de mfp. How do i setup scan to e-mail on windows 7 on this network printer?


Multi-function printers cannot scan and then e-mail the scanned image. They can scan and then fax a document.
You need to scan the document, then save the scanned image, open your e-mail program and create the e-mail then attach the image file (file attachment) to the e-mail before you send the e-mail.

How does the 1210 scanner work with Windows 7? I have downloaded the driver for the printer and it works ok, but I cannot use the software for the printer. The copier and the scanner work, but i cannot...


You will have to do a two step process to send a scanned document or image by email; the scan to e-mail button won't work. Scan using either Windows Fax and Scan or Paint. Save your file. Then start (Compose/Write) an e-mail to the person you need to send the document. Click Attach and browse to the location where the scan was saved. The default folder is C:/Users/<user_name>/My Documents/Scanned Documents . Click OK after selecting that image. Finish writing your e-mail and send it.

If you'd like to automatically open the e-mail program, browse to the folder where you saved the fax from Computer (Start button) and right click on the image. Choose Send to Mail Recipient. The new mail compose window should open.

I hope this helps.

(a program like PaperPort may let you send to e-mail recipient without the extra step; however I'm not sure of the details.)

CANNOT E-MAIL SCANNED DOCUMENTS. THERE WERE NO INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO DO THIS


well for this what we should do is make sur that your e-mail is not configured you can configure your e-mail that means whenever you login to your e-mail you type in your username and password and if the e-mail gets synchronised it will automatically open your e-mail so this the best resolution for this and once you scan any picture you get an option to scan to e-mail and it should work..................... thank you

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.

I want to scan a picture on my HP officejet K60 and email to my account. I need to know how to set this up


Hi bee03101962,

When scanning to e-mail, the scanned image is placed in a newly created e-mail message as an attachment. Complete the message, adding addresses, subject, and text, and send it. Here's how you would do that.
  1. Start the e-mail program and connect to the Internet service. For some programs, doing this first avoids confusion about assigning the e-mail a date and time for delivery.
  2. Load the original in the scanner.
  3. In the HP Director , click Scan to E-Mail . The all-in-one product scans the document, and the scan appears in a new message window of the e-mail program. NOTE: When scanning to e-mail, the scan is saved as .jpg file, which generally results in a smaller file size. Regarding file size, if the .jpg file exceeds the ISP's maximum size, consider rescanning at a lower resolution. Microsoft Office 2000 programs may or may not be supported. For more information on supported programs, check the HP Web site: www.hp.com/go/all-in-one.
  4. Process the e-mail message normally.
The scanner software scans into several e-mail and fax programs. If the program is supported, its name may appear in the Send To list in the Scan window. Some e-mail programs appear in the list as Mail. Good Luck, Don't forget to leave a rating. Thanks Mark

Need steps to scan document to email


The destination of a scanned item can be set to E-mail using the Director screen. Before changing the scan to destination to E-mail, make sure the E-mail program is compatible by checking the following points:
  • The E-mail program must be set up and functioning properly. The E-mail program must be MAPI compliant.
After making sure the E-mail program is compatible, change the scan to destination to E-mail using these steps:
  1. Open the Director window.
Click Settings , and then click E-mail Settings .
This will let you enter info so your printer can find your email program. Also, if you click, Help, Onscreen users guide from the director window. These are usually pretty good with step by step directions. Hope this helps! Happy scanning!

How to set scan for a new person on bizhub c351


After pressing "scan," press "Direct Input," then "Scan to E-mail." That will come up with a digital keyboard with which you can enter the e-mail. You'll have to type out the whole address, as on my printer (even though I have the manual) I can't seem to find out how to save it so you don't have to type it in every time...

However, after inputting the e-mail address, press "Start" and it should scan to the e-mail.
