There are many things that can affect this. 1. The scanner is scanning the document too small. Make sure the resolution is at least 96dpi and if you are scanning a document it should be 8½x11 inches. (the same size as the document). Scan the document, save it, ensure it is big enough. 2. The document is nice and big... now you need to e-mail. Some scanners actually have a scan and e-mail button right on them... if so use that and this discussion doesn't need to happen. If the document is large enough then open up your mail and create a new document. 3. Make sure the document size is not RESIZED when you send it... some mail programs (Outlook is what I use) will allow one to make the document size smaller (presuming it is a picture) so people with dial-up service and receive the file faster. Check those settings and you should be fine. To make the scan smaller in size but not in size on screen scan in greyscale if you don't need the color. Color will make the scan 3X larger.

It must have something to do with the program you are using. Check the settings of the program. And the settings of the scanning program. Normally when you scan something... the picture is always much bigger than the original document. And if you print it... it revert to its original size to fit on a page. You must also use the setting "text enhanced" when scanning documents. It comes out much better.
