Sending Scan Files to My E-mail Address (Scan to Me)

Scan to Me allows you to send scan files to your e-mail address that is registered in the Address Book. In Scan to Me, scan data transmission starts even though an address is specified.

You can also use [Operation panel screen illustration] to show the on-screen instructions. The instructions navigate you through the scanning procedure so you can obtain the image you want even if you are not sure how to make settings or scan originals as you want.

Scan to Me is only available when user authentication is enabled on the machine.
