More and more administrative procedures are now done remotely by sending scanned documents by email.
Step 1. Scan the document you want to send
This operation varies from scanner to scanner and computer to computer. See the instructions for both manufacturers.
Consider scanning your document in PDF format. Since it is going to be sent to someone, you can be sure that they can run it smoothly
Step 2. Run your email application
Otherwise go to your webmail. Act exactly as if you were checking your email inbox either with special software or directly on the site of your service provider.
Step 3. Write a new message
Type in what you have to say to the recipient and let them know there is an attachment.
- To write a new email, it is often enough to click on an icon at the top of the window: a pencil on a sheet of paper, a sign
Step 4. Type the recipient's email address
Type it in the field to the right of the mention TO:
Step 5. Click the Attach button
To attach the scanned document, you usually need to click on a paperclip icon.
- There is another possibility: find your scanned document, right click on its icon, then select To copy in the menu. Right click on a blank part of your email and select To stick on: your file is attached!
Step 6. Find your scanned document on the hard drive
Click once on its name.
Step 7. Click Open
Depending on the software or messaging concerned, this button may have another name, such as OK Where Join.
