    Can anyone help with the following problem?
    When I use the scanning function, the image (text) I get is almost unreadable in the preview pane. Transferring it to email, it still remains the same.
    Some time ago I checked with Canon support and they advised me to adjust the MAPI settings in the email program. Got no idea what they are talking about. I don't think it is an email problem as the scan is not successful before sending it to Outlook.
    I have adjusted various settings, but the scan is the same - unreadable.
    Has anyone else had this problem, and, any suggestions?
    Thanks

    What are you scanning? Pictures or text?
    Are you trying to send a text document as a picture?
    Or are you trying to scan text into a format that can be edited?

    The test I was doing was just a copy of a printed email, B&W Doc 300dpi.
    Not trying to send as a picture. And not into a format for editing.

    So you're not trying to scan it as a picture or text. What are you trying to do?

    Sorry, of course it is a picture. PDF.

    So you're trying to scan directly to PDF? (Which isn't a picture.)
    What application are you using to do the scan?
