We've implemented this in house (for a smaller number of people) by
just letting them type their e-mail address in. This means more effort
when scanning, but it's something that's done infrequently enough that
no-one seems to mind.
For extra bonus points, route the mails through a server that provides
you with some statistics as to which users use the service most often
and put the top 100 in the 'saved e-mails' slots. You might find that
this optimises things sufficiently for the frequent scanner users, and
allow the less frequent users to just type in their address. I'm
assuming the Kyocera provides an interface to allow e-mail address entry
in a similar fashion to the Xerox Document Centre here.
Hope this helps.
