Once you've scanned an image you should have a choice as to what format to save it in (i.e., .gif, .mif, .jpg, .JPEG, etc.). Its easiest if you can save to .gif or .jpg. You can then either attach the image using the "attach" option in your mail tool, or insert the image in the body of the e-mail text using the "insert" option on your e-mail tool.

Try it by sending some simple images to yourself.

Hope this helps, Cheers, Wayne

Click on the Windows "Start" button,
Mouse over to "My Pictures"
(XP originally defaults to this file location when saving pictures)
at the very least there is a folder named "Sample Pictures"
you could open that folder to get the feel for this or if you see your scanned photo/document click on it
XP will open the pictures you have saved into a
"Windows Picture and Fax Viewer"or sample pictures will open in a similiar fashion
from there you can right click on the picture and choose
"Send To" then
"Mail Recipient"
*at this point, you will need to have your email setup or go thru the setup process the if the email client is not already selected.*
provided your email is setup, you will have the choice to "Make all my pictures smaller" or "Keep the original sizes" 
*this adjusts the picture to fit the email pane.
for folks like my dad (I do love him) whom scan photos in so big.. you have to pan three screens left-right (I have been guilty of this also)*
The way Wayne has described is a very good way to accomplish the same goal.  I merely offer a different method.
PS - I could never drive to work on the same route in the city.  Windows is like me in that respect.... you can always take a detour, but you get to the same destination.

  Just food for thought and to keep ya from doing more work in the future rescanning it.  If you foresee the need of wanting to print it out in Word, Worperfect or other word processors a lot of the time a TIFF file is the preferred format by them.  Sometimes I go ahead while I have it scanned and save it as a JPG and a TIFF.  That way I have the JPG for photo quality resolution escpecially for enlargements and scrapbooks with the TIFF giving ability to print on letters or family newletters.  I know you asked regarding email, but thought I'd just  for down the road too!
Have a great day,

Convert to JPEG if possible, add as an attachment when you send your email.  Drop down box will let you choose the file...I always put it on Desktop for easy finding.
Two Ton was merely a right click copy and paste

You can scan directly to your e-mail or another way is to scan to a file and then attach the file to your email. Hope this helps. JET

You said, "You can scan directly to your e.mail."

I ask, how?
I have the free Do I need a paid variety to
be able to do this. Do I need software to scan to my
e.mail. I have Windows 98. I need a step by step to

I bet there are others on list equally clued out.
