What Is the Maximum Number of Shortcuts That Can Be Used on Lexmark Multifunction Printers?



This article explains the limit to the number of shortcuts that you can create for each type of function – Fax, Email, and File Transfer Protocol (FTP) – on the Lexmark MFPs listed below.

Memory Options and Allocation for MFPs 2007 and Below

These Lexmark MFPs base the number of shortcuts available on memory requirements, not on a hard limit to the number of shortcuts.

Example using Fax shortcuts:

One shortcut for each (ten-digit number = 123-456-7890) (16-character name = John Doe’s Fax) = 31 bytes per entry

Disk Model 56,350 bytes56,350/31 = 1817 speed dials (or 1800 to round off the number)
Non-Disk Model 16,100 bytes16,100/31 = 519 speed dials (or 500 to round off the number)

X642e and X644e (non-disk) support:

  • Fax = 16,100 bytes
  • Email = 16,100 bytes
  • FTP = 8,000 bytes
  • Profiles = 100 total or 16,384 bytes, whichever comes first.

On MFPs with a hard disk, there is 3.5 times as much space as on a non-disk model.

The X646e, X64xef, and X85xe (with hard disk) support:

  • Fax = 56,350 bytes
  • Email = 56,350 bytes
  • FTP = 28,000 bytes
  • Profiles = 100 total or 16,384 bytes, whichever comes first.

An x denotes any number within a given model series.

Memory Options and Allocation for MFPs 2008 Onwards

The maximum number of shortcuts that can be created for the following functions – Fax, Email, File Transfer Protocol (FTP), Copy, and Profiles – is based on two criteria:

  1. Memory requirements
    The presence of a hard drive or other memory options does NOT affect the memory available for shortcut storage.

  2. The total number of Fax + Email + FTP shortcuts is limited to 500 entries (not 500 of each type).IMPORTANT! Either limit being reached will prevent additional shortcuts from being installed.

X20x, X36x, X54x Series MFPs:

  • Fax Shortcuts (Speed Dials) = A maximum of approximately 99 based on a ten digit phone number
  • Locations in a shortcut = A maximum of 12 locations
  • Numbers of characters = A maximum of 512 characters
