    Windows Fax and Scan - Fax Forward as Email Grayed Out


    Hello,


    I'm having an issue with Windows Fax and Scan. My Fax "Forward as Email" is grayed out and can't be used. MyScan "Forward as Email" is working and routes straight to Outlook. I'm assuming they both use the same process MAPI?, so why would one work and the other doesn't?


    I have Outlook 2016 set as my default mail client. I've tried removing Fax and Scan entirely and reinstalling but there is no change. Also tried changing default to Mail, rebooting, change to Outlook, rebooting, and still no change.


    Its worth noting that this started after moving to Windows 10, this worked on Windows 7 with no issues. The settings on my fax server have not changed.

    :)

    windows 10 forward as email for scan is grayed out

    It says forward as email. I have a document that I scanned and want to email it or as the fax and scan says forward as email.
