Hi,

To my understanding, the Lexmark X125 will only scan a document and auto start your email program if your email program supports MAPI (Messaging Application Program Interface).

Pls post back what email program you are using.

Good luck and kind regards.

    Hi again,

    There are basically two types of email programs that regular users use:
    1. built-in or add-on. built-in example is Outlook, add-on example is Eudora;
    2. web based - example is mail.yahoo.com.

    If you send/receive emails by logging to a webpage (of a mail server) then you are using the latter, webbased and your Lexmark will not work automatically. You need to manually scan the document or picture and save it in a folder inside your computer. When you compose your new mail, click on attach and point to where you saved the scan doc or image.

    Scanning text and using OCR is another method if the document you are scanning would be converted to text and be part of your email body.

    If you are using the former, please open your email program and look in the help for the exact program name and version.

    Cheers.

Yo should save first the file into the hard drive , and then print. If you want to save faster , copy the text into the notepad.

How does one lower the scan resolution on the Dell 2135cn? Currently, a document of twenty - or so - pages, saves to a pdf file of ten-plus megabytes. Far too large to attach to email.


You need to adjust the resolution in the software. Are you using the Dell software and PaperPort or another application?

This will be easiest to do when you launch the scan from the computer. If you have the TWAIN driver loaded, load the document to scan in the ADF and open Paperport. Click FileScan and the available scanners list should open. Choose your scanner (otherwise click the Select button on the left side of the window). Then click OK. Click on the Scanner Display dialog box on the left of the window. Click on Preview. Then adjust the resolution by clicking on the Image Quality tab.

If the document contains is only a series of picture or you have the WIA driver loaded, then use Paint or PhotoGallery (Vista includes the program, but it is available for XP or Windows 7). Then choose File > Import from Camera or Scanner > From Scanner. Open the Advanced Properties dialog box by clicking on Adjust the Quality of the Scanned picture.

I hope this helps.

(The default resolution is used when you launch a scan from the unit itself. It is possible to adjust it once the software loads but you must use the scan to file option, instead of scan to e-mail. Then attach the resultant file to your e-mail.)

How can I scan to email. I can scan and reprint plus I can scan to memory card


To use this feature in Windows, a destination must be programmed in the scan setup before scanning to a destination. See Set up the product Scan To button.

Load the originals that are to be scanned face-up in the automatic document feeder (ADF) input tray, with the top of the document forward, and adjust the media guides.

Lift the flatbed scanner lid and load the original that is to be scanned face-down on the flatbed scanner with the top, left corner of the document located in the lower-right corner of the glass. Gently close the lid.

On the product control panel, press Scan To.
Use the arrow buttons to select a file destination.
Press Start Scan or OK to scan the document to a file.

Scanning to e-mail is supported by any e-mail program that supports the Messaging Application Programming Interface (MAPI) protocol. Many versions of popular e-mail programs seem to be MAPI-compliant. See the support information for your e-mail program to determine whether or not it is MAPI-compliant.

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.

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

How do i use my scanner


If you have loaded the software for the printer/scanner.
Go to your HP director Icon and start this program.
you should see your Scanner / printer listed under Select device.

You can place a document/picture in the document feeder on top.
OR you can place the document / picture directly on the glass.
(Lift the hinged lid to reveal the scanner glass)
Don't worry the document feeder uses a different scan wand.
Now document / picture in place select the Scan document or Scan picture icon from the HP director. Depending on which type of document you have placed in / on the scanner.

Scanner should warm up then scan presenting you with a preview image. From here you can decide what and where to go.

You are not limited to just the HP director.
Other applications can use the twain source to activate your scanner software. This will transfer the scan to your application.
Irfanview is a prime example. Image viewer that will let you "Acquire" and image from you scanner. Be sure to select the twain source.

Good luck!

How to scan to e-mail


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).

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

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!
