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.
I have Epson Perfection 4180 photo scanner with EPSON Scan loaded on XP SP2. When you press the buttons on the front of the scanner, XP displays a dialog box that allows you to select a program to associate with the pressed button. Currently, only EPSON Scan shows in the list. Is it possible to assign a program other than EPSON scan to one of the buttons (scan to mail)? I would like to launch a custom package. I've gone into Control Panel, Scanners and Cameras, Properties, Events, Actions. The only program listed is EPSON Scan. TIA
