This is not an issue with your printer, this is an issue with your email provider. It's telling you that the file size is too big to be sent by your email provider.

You can check with your email provider to see if they can increase the size that attachments are allowed to be, but that is no guarantee that the person you are sending to can receive files when they are that big.

The best solution is to either scan at a lower resolution, or use a more compressed file format. If you're not doing so already, scan to a .jpg file format. If that still does not work, try reducing the scan resolution... start at 600dpi, then maybe go down 100dpi at a time until it is small enough to send.

You can try to update your printer driver by downloading the Lexmark X7170 driver from the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/fWPweq. Select your operating system, download and execute the file.
You can also try to decrease the scan resolution. Launch Lexmark All-In-One Center application on your computer. Select Scan mode > See More Scan Settings > lower the scan resolution value to 200 or 150 dpi. Note: This will decrease the scan file size and affect the scan output.
Or you can use a third party scan software to decrease scan file size. You can search the web for free scan softwares.

When i email scanned docs from my HP officejet 8500 Plus printer to my email, the pdf's are too large. how do i set them to be emailed at a smaller size.


No problem, you can solve this problem very easily :
Whenever you scan a document directly to your e-mail in a PDF format then printer scans it using its own property and only scans the document without any editing in the font or characters.

But the output i.e. the scanned document in pdf shows the same text using its own properties. That font is selected by pdf and not by the hp software.You can open the scanned pdf file and manually change the font size.
Or else

The best way that I will suggest you :

- First scan the documetn in a pdf file or any format on your computer instead of directly on e-mail.
Because when you scan it to your computer printer will scan the document directly to computer and in this way after scanning you can open and see the document. You can make sure if it is scanned properly or not, however when you scan it to e-mail there are chances when we dont verify if the document is scanned properly or not. If there is any hardware issue or any other error then it will scan half page or a blank page....we wont be able to verify it.
- Also if it is an official document which is half scanned or has some problem in it will give a bad impact on the receiver which is not good for professionals.
- By scanning on computer you can verify the document, can make required changes and will be able to send the document in a proper way. It is going to take few seconds but results will be fruitful....try it..!!! I do the same way and there is not much difference

I scanned a document, but when I go to attach the file, it stays in attaching files forever??


Greg, Do you mean that when you want to send it by email it keeps attaching the file forever? If yes then check the size of the scanned document. What happens is that the moment you attach a document to an email Windows start sending it to the email server and that takes time as uploading is slower than downloading. And if the file a large one as scanned documents can be, then it will take that much longer. Try a smaller document first. Size wise small document. If that works fine then you can try larger documents. yes it may be time consuming but there is no price for mental satisfaction. To reduce the size of the scanned document, reduce the pixels in settings of the scanner. or reduce the page size. You will find the document reduced many times over.

First scan a single page and note the file size. Then scan two pages and check if the file size is changed. If the file size is changed, then you have problem with your viewing software. If the file size is same, then check your setting in the scaniing software.

Lexmark X7350 Scan feature


well you are able to scan multiple documents.. but the file size is more.. the way lexmark software writes the pdf file.. the file will be huge for PDF... but not sure if this is a case with any other all in one manufacturer like HP also... but i would assume it would be the same.. so scan the file to MS WORD or any other application that supports multiple pages... so u have it as one file... but if u want only pdf files, then u have to do a little work around like writing the MS WORD Document to pdf format. If the PDF Writer is not installed with your copy of MSWORD then try any free pdf writer software available on the internet.
