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.
NOTE: Illustrations shown below are from a representative product and operating system, and may differ from your Brother machine and operating system.
- Load your document.
- Click the (ControlCenter4) icon in the task tray, and then click Open.
Click the Scan tab.
- Choose the Document Type.
- Change the document's Scan Size, if needed.
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.
- Click (Send E-mail).
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.
