Configuring the e‑mail SMTP settings

Configure the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) settings to send a scanned document through e-mail. The settings vary with each service provider. For more information, see e‑mail service providers.

Before you begin, make sure that the printer is connected to a network and that the network is connected to the Internet.

    Using the Embedded Web Server

  1. Open a web browser, and then type the printer IP address in the address field.

    Notes:

    • View the printer IP address on the printer home screen. The IP address appears as four sets of numbers separated by periods, such as 123.123.123.123.
    • If you are using a proxy server, then temporarily disable it to load the web page correctly.
  2. Click Settings > E‑mail.

  3. From the E‑mail Setup section, configure the settings.

  4. Click Save.

    Notes:

    • For more information on the password, see e‑mail service providers.
    • For e‑mail service providers that are not on the list, contact your provider and ask for the settings.

    Using the e‑mail setup wizard in the printer

    Notes:

    • Before using the wizard, make sure that the printer firmware is updated. For more information, see Updating firmware.
    • These instructions apply only to some printer models.
  1. From the home screen, touch E‑mail.

  2. Touch Set up now, and then type your e‑mail address.

  3. Type the password.

    Notes:

    • Depending on your e-mail service provider, type your account password, app password, or authentication password. For more information on the password, see e‑mail service providers, and then look for Device Password.
    • If your provider is not listed, then contact your provider and ask for the Primary SMTP Gateway, Primary SMTP Gateway Port, Use SSL/TLS, and SMTP Server Authentication settings. Proceed with the setup after getting the settings.
  4. Touch OK.

    Using the Settings menu in the printer

  1. From the control panel, navigate to:

    Settings > E‑mail > E‑mail Setup

    For non-touch-screen printer models, press to navigate through the settings.

  2. Configure the settings.

    Notes:

    • For more information on the password, see e‑mail service providers.
    • For e‑mail service providers that are not on the list, contact your provider and ask for the settings.
