    Emailing from Windows Fax and Scan.


    My daughter, whose laptop O/S is Windows 10 Pro, has run into the following problem when using Windows Fax and Scan. Her default email client is eM Client but when she tries to send a scanned document as an attachment, Fax and Scan opens Microsoft Outlook which is overlaid with an error message which indicates she is not licensed to use Outlook. Fax and Scan should, of course, open eM Client. She has to save the scanned document., open eM Client , then attach the saved document to an email. This, therefore, involves an annoying extra step.

    How can Outlook and its error message be prevented from opening up from Fax and Scan and eM Client substituted please?

    :)

    windows 10 forward as email for scan is grayed out

    Hello,

    Windows Fax and Scan uses MAPI to communicate with email clients.

    The Windows 10 Mail app currently does not support MAPI. To email directly from the Windows Fax and Scan you will need to install an email client that support MAPI.

  3. Windows fax and scan not working on Windows 10

    I thought my question was "I cannot scan from Windows Fax & Scan to windows live mail". When I was using Thunderbird for email I could scan attachments directly into an email, write the email, send it with attachments. How do I set up Fax & Scan to send
    the scan to Windows Live Mail. Sorry if my question miss led you.

    Why are you trying to fax an email ?

    Why do you have Outlook installed if you have an email service already.

    There`s no need to have Outlook installed.

    I have obviously not made myself clear. Sorry for that. I will try again:

    After scanning a document with Windows Fax an Scan, you get two or three options. The option I am referring to is "Forward as Email". When this is selected it opens Outlook rather than the free equivalent which my daughter uses which is called eM Client. ( To clear any confusion, I understand a generic name for programs such as Outlook, that access and manage ones emails, is email client - eM Client is one such freeware program ).

    My question is, how do I stop Fax and Scan selection "Forward as Email" defaulting to Outlook rather than to eM Client. This is a recent change that I want to correct.

    Have you set eMClient as your default email from within Settings.......you might also need to "set defaults by app" from the bottom of the Settings window and select all the defaults for eMClient........

  9. I set eMClient as my default email from within Settings and checked the "set defaults by app" and all apps were set to Outlook. Any other ideas how to solve this problem? Thank you!
