Understanding e-mail options

Original Size

This option opens a screen where you can choose the size of the documents you are going to e-mail.

Sides (Duplex)

This option informs the printer if the original document is simplex (printed on one side) or duplex (printed on both sides). This lets the scanner know what needs to be scanned for inclusion in the e-mail.


This option tells the printer whether the original document is in portrait or landscape orientation and then changes the Sides and Binding settings to match the original document orientation.

E-mail Subject

This option lets you enter a subject line for your e-mail. You can enter up to 255 characters.

E-mail File Name

This option lets you customize the attachment file name.

E-mail Message

This option lets you enter a message that will be sent with your scanned attachment.

Send As

This option sets the output (PDF, TIFF, JPEG or XPS) for the scanned image.


This option tells the printer the original document type. Choose from Text, Text/Photo, or Photo. Color can be turned on or off with any of the Content choices. Content affects the quality and size of your e-mail.
