How to set up and troubleshoot Push Scan to Email?

Check the customer’s email system, whether it’s their own email server (like Epson) or a web-based email system (e.g. Gmail, Outlook.com, Yahoo, GMX, Mail.com).

Customers who use web-based email services will have the most trouble, but regardless of whatever service they use, you’ll need to know their SMTP settings to figure out what’s wrong. Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) is a protocol for sending emails.


  • Gmail is a web-based email service.
  • SMTP.gmail.com is the Gmail SMTP server address.
  • Your complete Gmail address (e.g. example@gmail.com) is your Gmail SMTP user name.
  • SMTP password for Gmail: Your Gmail password
  • SMTP port for Gmail (TLS): 587
  • SMTP port for Gmail (SSL): 465
  • TLS/SSL is necessary for Gmail SMTP: Certainly.
  • Outlook.com SMTP server address: SMTP.live.com
  • Outlook.com SMTP user name: Your full Outlook.com email address (not an alias)
  • Outlook.com SMTP password: Your Outlook.com password
  • Outlook.com SMTP port: 587
  • Outlook.com SMTP TLS/SSL encryption required: yes
  • Yahoo! Mail SMTP server address: SMTP.mail.yahoo.com
  • Yahoo! Mail SMTP user name: Your full Yahoo! Mail email address (including “@yahoo.com”)
  • Yahoo! Mail SMTP password: Your Yahoo! Mail password
  • Yahoo! Mail SMTP port: 465
  • Yahoo! Mail SMTP TLS/SSL required: yes
  • GMX Mail SMTP server address: SMTP.gmx.com
  • GMX Mail SMTP user name: Your full GMX Mail email address (“example@gmx.us”, for instance)
  • GMX Mail SMTP password: Your GMX Mail password
  • GMX Mail SMTP port: 25 (alternative: 465 is actually 587 the information is incorrect on the site.
  • GMX Mail SMTP TLS/SSL required: yes
