The various scanning options (colour scanning, different resolutions, OCR) can be selected from the device’s Scanner Settings menu.

Your scan does not arrive

    The scan server will keep trying to post the files until space is available.
  2. E-mail: the file is too large to e-mail, or the e-mail address does not exist.
    In either case the scan will be deleted.

Who is this for?

Students and staff.
