How do I use my product's control panel to automatically send an email of a scanned item?

  • You can set up a job in Document Capture Pro or Document Capture to automatically send a scanned item to Outlook or MAPI-enabled email applications. To set up a job for this purpose, do the following:

    Note: Make sure your Epson product and computer are connected to the same network.

    1. Start Document Capture Pro or Document Capture and click Manage Job.
    2. Select Add to create a job.
    3. In the Job Settings window, enter a descriptive Job Name.

      Note: When scanning from the control panel, the Job Name will appear on the product's LCD screen.

    4. Select E-Mail from the Destination drop-down menu.

    5. Click Destination Settings and select Account Settings in the E-mail Settings window.
    6. Set up your email account by entering your email address and selecting your Sending Method and Authentication settings.

    7. Click OK.
    8. Click Add in the E-mail Settings window. The Message Settings window appears.

    9. Enter a Setting Name, and enter a specific email address where you'd like to automatically send the scanned attachment(s).

      Note: To attach your scan to a blank email, enter a Setting Name and enable Check e-mail before sending. Leave the other fields blank.

    10. Click Add.
    11. Click OK. The email address now appears in the E-mail Settings window. Click OK again when you are done.
    12. Click OK in the Job Settings window to finalize your settings.
    13. Click Event Settings. Select your new job from one of the drop-down lists.

      Note: If the drop-down list is blank in Event Settings, restart your computer. Open Document Capture Pro or Document Capture, then perform this step again.

    14. Click OK.
    To scan, select Scan to Document Capture Pro on your product's control panel, then select the new job.
