Before you start
The printer should have an active network link to the same network as the machine that runs the installation process to set the Scan to Email function.
Before starting the configuration process, administrators need the following information:
- Administrative printer access
- SMTP (smtp.mycompany.com, for example)
NOTE: For instance, if you do not know the SMTP server name, SMTP port or authentication information, please contact the email / Internet Service Provider or the system administrator. SMTP server names and port names can usually be found easily by searching the web. You are using terms such as “Gmail smtp server name” or “Yahoo smtp server name” for search purposes, for example.
- SMTP port number
- SMTP server authentication requirements for outgoing emails, including an authentication user name and password where applicable.
NOTE: For information on the digital sending limits for your email account, see the details of your email service provider. If you reach your sending cap, some providers can temporarily lock your account.
