Scan to Email

When using the staff printer/copier to scan documents the default “email To” option is yourself. Whilst this can be changed (so as to email the scan directly to someone else) this isn’t recommended because:

  • It’s always a good idea to check the scanned image is readable before forwarding it to someone else, otherwise they will only contact you back to have the document re-scanned
  • Emailing it to yourself then forwarding it on means a copy of the document will be in your sent box in outlook just in case you need to refer to it (e.g. to resend in case the other person has deleted the email)
