Was there a utility or a cd that came with the printer, and is there a scan button on the printer? That might be easier to do if you have Canon's software, however, if you dont, or dont want to look for it (haha, i wouldnt), you can go to this website and follow its instructions on how to scan a document using windows. The instructions are very clear (they are on the microsoft website) and are made so that anybody can understand them. If you have any problems, feel free to contact me. Or, just post another thing on here.

check your scanner's software suite or the app you are trying to use to send documents with. you may need to scan your document first, then save the file, then send using e-mail app as an "attachment" file. your answer is YES. using the 3 steps above. scan save send
Have you tried compressing the file into a zip format. If you are using Windows this can be done using right click or download zip genuis and use that. Once compressed the file should be small enough to email.
You can use A-PDF Image to PDF (free download here) to scan a document into PDF format and email it with only 2 steps: Click the "Scan paper" icon to scan documents from scanner Click the "Build to One PDF And Mail" icon to create a PDF document contains all of the scanned documents and email them.
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.

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:
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!
