How do I enter my email address when I want to scan to email?

Don’t!

The copier already knows your email address because you have logged in! All you need to do is choose what you want to receive –

  • OCR PDF (recommended!)
  • OCR Word Document
  • OCR Excel Spreadsheet

OCR means you get text that can be copied from the document. PDF is normally the best option because it gives you both the image of what you copied as well as the OCRed text.
