Scan to Email Attachment Using ControlCenter4 Home Mode (Windows)
You can scan a document directly into your default E-mail application using ControlCenter4, so you can send the scanned data as an attachment.
The Scan to E-mail feature does not support Webmail services. Use the Scan to Image or Scan to File feature to scan a document or a picture, and then attach the scanned file to an E-mail message.

Click the Scan tab.

The machine starts scanning, and the scanned image appears in the image viewer.
- Click the left or right arrow buttons to preview each scanned page.
- Crop the scanned image, if needed.

The Send E-mail dialog will appear. Configure the attached file settings, and click OK. Your default E-mail application will open and the image will be attached to a new, blank email.
