That is a novel idea and yes it does have the ability to send a scanned
document via email; however, I think that is way more trouble than it
is worth. I have the problem solved by sharing the directories on the
MS machines. It isn't perfect, but it does work. Porting the Brother
scanner software to FreeBSD would probably be ideal, but I have neither
the time, a spare machine nor probably the skill to do it.
