A lot of people don’t realize that you can actually scan to email on an Epson WF-3720 printer. This can be a really useful feature if you need to send scanned documents or images to someone electronically. Here’s a quick guide on how to do it.

Steps to follow

Before you start scanning, there are a few things you need to do:

  1. Make sure your Epson printer is connected to your computer and turned on.
  2. If you haven’t already, install the latest drivers for your Epson printer. You can find these on the Epson website or in the support section of your printer’s manual.
  3. Open the document or image you want to scan in your scanning software. This will vary depending on what software you’re using, but most scanners come with basic scanning software that will work just fine.
  4. Select the settings for your scan. This includes deciding whether you want to scan in color or black and white, at what resolution (dots per inch), and what file format you want to save the scanned document as.
  5. Start the scan by clicking on the appropriate button in your scanning software window.
  6. Once the scan is complete, open your email client and create a new message.
  7. In the “To” field, enter the email address you want to send the scanned document to.
  8. In the “Subject” field, enter a brief description of what the document is (e.g., “Scan of my latest project“).
  9. Click on the “Attach” button and select the scanned document from wherever it was saved on your computer’s hard drive.
  10. Send the email and your scanned document will be on its way!


If you’re like most people, you probably don’t think about scanning documents very often. But there are actually a lot of reasons why you might need to scan to email on your Epson WF- printer. Maybe you need to send a contract or document to someone who doesn’t have a fax machine. Or maybe you want to save a copy of an important document for yourself.

Whatever the reason, scanning to email is actually pretty easy once you know how to do it.

Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Open up the document that you want to scan. If it’s a physical document, place it face-down on the scanner bed.
  2. Press the “Scan” button on your Epson WF- printer. This will open up the scanner software on your computer.
  3. Select the “Email” option in the scanner software. You may also have the option to save the scanned document as a file on your computer, but we’re just going to focus on emailing it for now.
  4. Enter the email address that you want to send the scanned document to and hit “Send.” That’s it! Your document will be sent as an attachment in an email just like any other attachments that you’re used to sending.
