Emailing scanned documents
This section explains the basic procedure for sending scan files by e-mail. Obviously there are a great many buttons (both real and touch screen) which you could press, but the usual operations are simple and reasonably intuitive. This page only describes the basic functions.
A copy of this document is displayed next to the machine, so you do not have to print out this page (and the rather poor photographs, sorry)!
Start by pressing the [Scanner select] button to take you to the E-mail screen.
The current settings will appear in the Current settings area.
- Place originals.
- If necessary, press [Scan Settings] to specify scanner settings such as
resolution and scan size.
The Scan Type screen will appear, Resolution or Scan Size will appear when the relevant tab is selected. Press [OK] when done, this will take you back to the Email Screen. Selecting both high resolution and full colour will result in a large file, up to about 10Mbytes per page - thus this is not recommended for multi-page files (of more than say 5 sides) as you may run into file size limits imposed by our mailer.
If necessary, press [Send File Type/Name] on the Email Screen to specify settings such as file format and file name (optional).
Note also the distinction between single page and multi page documents.
Specify the destination by pressing [Manual Entry] on the Email Screen.
Alternatively, an email address can be stored permanently in the Address Book by selecting [Prg Dest] on the Email screen. It will then appear in the Address book area. That address can subsequently be selected by touching it.
- If necessary, press [Text] on the Email Screen to enter an e-mail message to be sent with the scan.
If necessary, press [Subject] on the Email Screen to specify the e-mail subject. The two stored possibilities are Urgent or High, touch those if you want to use them, alternatively enter your own text by selecting [Text Entry].
- When happy, press the Start button (the large green circular button on the right hand keypad).
- If you are scanning batches, place the next originals.
To cancel scanning, press the Clear/Stop button (the red circular button on the right hand keypad).
After an e-mail is sent, the destination, sender, subject, text, and file name fields will be automatically cleared.
Note that an A4 full colour PDF at 600dpi will result in a file being sent in the region of 10Mbytes, other selections will be significantly smaller. The default settings are for this to be delivered as a single email.
