How do I attach a scanned image to an email with Epson ScanSmart?

  • Open Epson ScanSmart and follow the instructions below.

    Attaching a Scan to Email

    You can attach a scanned image to an email as a file attachment.

    Note: Your email app and account settings should be configured before scanning. You must install a MAPI-type email program such as Outlook Express, Windows Live Mail, Entourage, or Mac Mail. Web-based email services such as Gmail are not supported. If you do not have a supported email program, you see an error message.

    1. Make sure your originals are scanned and reviewed. See the link below.
    2. In the Select Action window, click Attach to Email. You see a screen like this:

    3. Change the settings as follows:
      • The document type and scan date for the file name are automatically detected. You can change them as necessary.
      • You can save the scanned image in a variety of formats. If you select Searchable PDF as the File type setting, you can select the OCR (Optical Character Recognition) language.
      • If you also want to save a copy of the scanned image to your computer, make sure the checkbox is selected and select the folder on your computer in which to save the file.
    4. Click Attach to E-mail. Your email program opens with the file attached to a new email.
