Copy letter from printer to laptop and send as e-mail

Is it possible to copy a letter from my printer to my laptop and then send it as a e-mail?.

If I understand correctly there are three ways possible.

1.) Open the file that you sent to the printer to print, select all of it and copy, then paste that into the body of your email.

2.) Scan the printed letter, save as file, then follow the instructions in #1.

3.) Cut to the chase and just attach the file to your email.

I might be missing something here. What is the make and model of your printer, does it save print jobs to make repetitive printing easier?

You need a file for the printer to interpret and print, once the file has been placed into the printers memory and print queue, and the print job is completed the printers programing wipes that job so it can move on to the next or wait for the next job.

Do you mean something like Cloud, Air, or mobile printing?

Maybe I failed to explain properly.What I want to do is to take a letter that is not on my computer or files but to copy it from my printer to my laptop and then send it attached to a e-mail.

  • How can it be physically on your printer?
  • Did it save a file?
  • Do you have a copy of the letter it printed? If you do, you have to open your word processor, create a new document by typing it into the new document and save it, then you can attach that to your email.
  • You still haven't told me what the make and model number of your printer is. ?/?

My printer is a Epson sx 515w and I was trying to avoid having to retype the original letter as it is rather a long epistle.Was hoping there would be some easy way to return the letter contents back to the laptop via the printer.

Do you know how to use the scan feature of that Epson? As an All-In-One it has scanning capabilities.
  • Open up the scanning utility.
  • Open the top lid to lay the letter onto the glass scan plate, close lid, start scan, save scan as a document or .PDF file.
  • Attach that file to your email.

  • If the letter is more than one page:
I downloaded the manual for your printer, but haven't found if the scanning utility can save multiple scans as one file. If it can not you will have to scan each page separately, create a file of each and send multiple files as attachments in your email. Not as elegant a solution, but it will work.

This may work but I can't find if there is a setting to save all scans made with the use of the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) as one document: https://files.support.epson.com/html...00-00010-00100
You may have to use the Professional setting: https://files.support.epson.com/html...00-00300-00300

You're welcome.

If you have any further questions on procedures or need clarification on certain steps, don't hesitate to ask.

One more consideration; If the letter is multiple pages and you're having problems sending it through email, check your email size limitations on the total amount of gigabytes (GB) you are allowed to send at one time.
Some email providers/programs can be stingy and only allow, let's say 5GB at a time so, if your letter's files total 6GB you will have to send two emails. You should receive a warning if the limitation has been reached, and the reverse is true also; Let's say you're allowed 10GB, but the person you're sending to has a 5GB limit, you will still have to send two emails.
