Please be aware that Scan to Email uses the University Email service which like most email services has to limit the size of an email that can be sent, including any attachments. If you are scanning a large number of pages at one time and use the the maximum quality scan settings you may be find that your scanned job fails to send. No notification of this failure can appear on the MFD's display, but a failure-to-send report will be printed out.

Workarounds are:

  • Scan in smaller batches of pages instead of large numbers of pages at once.
  • Use the default scan settings which will produce smaller PDF attachments
