Digital Postman combines your scanner and your e-mail program into
an easy to operate digital sender system.
- Digital Postman takes the hassle from scanning: no difficult
settings to choose from, just put the document on the scanner
glass and press the button.
- Digital Postman is smart enough to find and interface with
your own familiar e-mail program, so you can use your own address
book, your own signature, your own mailing lists etc.
- A scanned document is attached to the e-mail message in the form
of an executable program. This program contains a small viewer,
as well as the scanned image itself. The recipient can start the
executable to view the original image. The viewer can also print
the image, or copy it to the clipboard for use in other programs.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Start Digital Postman. Put your document on your scanners platen and
press Digital Postman's Scan button to have Digital Postman scan
the document. Next, press Digital Postman's Send button. Digital Postman
opens a new e-mail message in your e-mail program and attaches the
scanned image to the message. All you have to do is select a recipient
from your address book, fill in the subject line and send the message.
It's easier than sending a fax!
Digital Postman supports the use of Automatic Document Feeders (ADF),
so sending a multi-page document is just as easy.
It's even simpler to send images that are already on your disk somewhere.
Just press Digital Postman's Load button. Digital Postman reads TIFF,
PCX, GIF, TGA, BMP, JPEG and PNG files.
