  • Depending on your e-mail application, a phishing warning might appear after you receive an e-mail message. To prevent phishing warnings appearing after you receive e-mail from a specified sender, you must add the sender to your e-mail application's exclusion list. For details about how to do this, see your e-mail application's Help.

5In the e-mail destination, click the URL.

Web Image Monitor starts.

6View, delete, send, or download the file over the network using Web Image Monitor.


  • For details about Web Image Monitor functions and their settings, see "Monitoring and Configuring the Machine", Network and System Settings Reference.

  • It is recommended that you use Web Image Monitor on the same network environment.

  • Depending on the environment, even if you click the URL in the file sent by e-mail, the browser may not start and you may not be able to view the file. If this happens, click the same URL again, or manually enter the URL in the browser's address bar.

  • To display details about the functions for managing stored files using Web Image Monitor, click [Help] on the upper right of each Web browser's window.

  • You can send the URL by e-mail and simultaneously send it by Scan to Folder. In this case, the file is sent to the Scan to Folder destination, not the URL.

  • To send a stored file, see "Sending a Stored File".
