You can use the Email app to scan images and attach them to emails. You can specify the file name and format of the attachment, and include a subject heading and message for the email.

To send a scanned image in an email:

  1. Load your original documents.
    • For single pages or paper that cannot be fed using the duplex automatic document feeder, use the document glass. Lift the duplex automatic document feeder, then place the original documents face down in the upper-left corner of the document glass.
    • For multiple, single, or 2-sided pages, use the duplex automatic document feeder. Remove all staples or paper clips from the pages. Insert the original documents face up in the duplex automatic document feeder, with the top of the page entering the feeder first. Adjust the paper guides so that they fit against the document originals.
  2. At the printer control panel, press the Home button.
