when you suggest "scan to mail".

If you use the Epson Scan software to scan a photo, then safe it to your hard disk somewhere, you can then send that image as an attachment in an email.

Other than that, I am sure there are other different scanner programs available, but whether they would work with an Epson scanner I don't know. I would have thought so.

If you type Scanner Software into Google, you will get a number of results.
