Mail LOR by email

HI.
I am doing a clerkship at a UNIV. hospital, and i went to ask for an LOR and my attending told me that she will email it to me. So my question is that will that be usable. I mean i will have to print it out and send it to ecfmg, will those guys accept the printed LOR, or is there a way that i can send them the scanned copy that she will send me.?

You cannot use a scanned copy of an LoR, it has to be original with original author signature.

You can ask her to mail it to you instead.
