    Couldn't you scan it to a file on your computer and then add as an attachment to your webmail?

    You will most likely not find a device that can do scan to email when your email is webmail. The issue is that the scan to email function is looking for an application to launch to open up an email message. With webmail, the scanner does not know how to log into your web service, create a new email, and attach the scanned file.

    That's the problem with a lot of all-in-one devices, particularly the scan function. I bet it won't let you scan to Adobe Acrobat Professional or Photoshop either. Only some POS image program that came with it.
