Another mildly annoying problem with a Brother MFC-665CW and CC3 (Control Center 3).
Everything seemed OK until I tried the scan to email feature.
It tried to start Outlook Express (while Microsoft Outlook was the main email application).
I quickly found that OE was the default windows email application, so I made Microsoft outlook the default email app…
But CC3 continued to try opening OE.
I figured: maybe CC3 took OE as the default printer when it was installed, so if I re-install CC3, then it will take MS Outlook as the default printer.
So I uninstall CC3, then re-install it (and re-patch it), but it still keeps opening OE!
OK, google is my friend, so a quick search later, I find the solution:
I open CC3 and go to Configuration ->Scan->Email.
I then configure the software and device buttons to use Microsoft Outlook as the default mail for scan to email.
At this point, the obvious question is: why doesn’t Brothers CC3 use windows default email program, and save users all the headache?
