Sending directly via smtp is not implemented in the Officejet pro L7590. Only the "bigger" models (7680 etc.) seem to have sending via smtp or storing via ftp or smb implemented in firmware. What I find extremely annoying about this: I'm missing this too, as I was mislead by the product description. This lack of functionality is not obvious from HP's product data sheet, which covers 7590, 7680 and 7780 at once.

With the L7590 your can only use some sort of HP Software on a PC.

But beware!

I wouldn't recommend installing any of HP's full featured software package on any pc that is further to be used in productive work!

HP's driver software and utilitys that comprise hundreds of megabytes to download are hard to install and much harder to clean up, if something went wrong.

On a old but fairly well running Pentium 4 machine the L7590 Software brought the system to a crawl just by running some obscure svchost background task that seems to monitor the MFC device.

Having lost tens of hours to the recovery of PCs that had HP's Windows software installed, I'd recommend setting up a linux server with a current version of hplip.

Please note, that with linux and hplip youd' have to write some scripts of your own, in order to "glue together" scanning via hplip and the sendmail command. I'haven't started this yet.

And with hplip you can not use the "send" button from the L7590 panel. So any action must be started on the pc. But hplip is far easier to install (and remove) and it doesn't seem to hog your cpu as much as that crappy, bloated HP Windows software.

I have a lexmark 464de mfp. How do i setup scan to e-mail on windows 7 on this network printer?


Multi-function printers cannot scan and then e-mail the scanned image. They can scan and then fax a document.
You need to scan the document, then save the scanned image, open your e-mail program and create the e-mail then attach the image file (file attachment) to the e-mail before you send the e-mail.

I am trying to figure out how to use my Brother MFC-8440 scanner. I would like to use it to scan documents to email out. When I go to Brother.com and look at the direction book, it doesn't have directions...


It is part of the Network User's Guide (section 10) and the Software User's Guide (section 3 for a PC using Windows, Section 8 for network scanning), not the User's Guide. The directions below are for XP and Win2K primarily. Slight changes may exist with other OS versions. (Full software is not available for Win7 so the buttons on the unit will not work. You will need to launch scans from the computer only. You can use Windows Paint or Fax and Scan without needing third party software. Then attach the file to an email either in the email software or by right clicking on the file and choosing Send to Mail Recipient.)

For either use, put the document face down on the glass or face up in the ADF.

If you use a directly connected computer, you need to set the destination for the Scan to E-mail in the Control Center (section 4-4 in the Software User's Guide). Open this program and make sure the correct machine is in the drop-down menu. This program needs to be running to hear the buttons being pressed. Click on E-mail to set which program will get the scanned document as an attachment for your e-mail. You can also set the resolution and type of attachment. If you do not want to use available file formats, you will need to scan in PaperPort (or other software) and then use that to attach the file to the e-mail. Then click Scan to launch the scan from the unit. Hit Set when ready to send.

If you have the unit set up on the network, then you can enter the LAN setup in the Front Panel (or a browser). Hit Menu 6 (and then the appropriate number for the next feature), such as TCP/IP, DHCP or Static IP (these are under 1), SMTP, POP3, Mail Address (Menu 6 2). Setup the Scan to email with Menu 6 7 1 for color and Menu 6 7 2 for black and white.

This automatically sends the item to the email server or PDF as either a PDF or JPEG. Then you need register the PC that will get the file to the unit, if you use scan to email (PC). (Your version of Windows will matter for exactly where the information is: Control Panel > Scanners and Cameras or Control Panel > Printers and Other Hardware > Scanners and Cameras.) Right click on the icon for the unit and select Properties to see the Network Properties box. Go through all of this set up including the Scan To Button. Then the Control Center will launch the e-mail program when it "hears" you press Scan, select Scan to Email, press Set, then choose PC and press Set again. (or select the destination PC which has e-mail access and press Set again). Scanning will start.

If you have set the POP3 and SMTP servers and the unit can directly access them, then you can scan to e-mail and enter the recipient address. Press Scan, select Scan to Email, press Set, choose Email Server and Press Set again. Adjust the scan quality as desired pressing Set at each step. Once you go through all of the layers, the LCD screen will prompt you for the recipient's email address. Then press Start.

I hope this helps.

Need help to setup the scan fuction for Canon Image runner 4570


Do you have the send feature or just scan? If just scan you need to install scan gear to the computer you want to scan to and configure scanner, than can pull scan fro canon to any viewer installed on your computer. If you have the send feature, make a folder on the c drive of the computer , share the folder with all permissions. Touch send on screen, reg. new address, touch file, arrow down to smb file, browser button to see your network, highlight your network, touch down highlight your computer name, enter user name and password as shown, log in to your computer from canon and highlight the shared folder and hit ok. you should now be able to send to that shared folder

How to scan to e-mail


Hi this is kamal....

pls read and do these steps carefully.. definitely u will get solution..


SCAN DIRECTLY TO E-MAIL FROM THE MACHINE- The direct "scan to e-mail" function was the hardest thing to setup. You have to have an actual POP e-mail address for your scanner, which is how it sends PDFs or JPGs of TIF files directly from the box. Getting an e-mail account setup is simple enough, but the control panel won't recognize the servers by name, for example standard pop mail server names list POP.GMAIL.COM. Instead you have to actually convert the server names into IP addresses (I found a website somewhere that did this) and insert that IP address into the control panel.

Once setup, the scan-to-email function works just as you'd expect. But it requires way too many key strokes on the machine to actually send the document. "Are you sure, Are you really sure, Are you really really sure?" (not exact quotes, but you get the idea)

I'm in my late-twenties with a background in the tech field, yet programming this direct-to-email function had me cussing and pulling my hair out. I imagine most people will setup the network scanning application and stop there. The network scanning application is actually a lot more versitile than the direct scan-to-email, even though it requires you to have your computer turned on. But using the network scanning the document just appears, then you can forward it to whatever e-mail you want via your computer (and keep your hair).

Send scanned document too the computer


For this issue that you are having. You need to have the printer connected to your network. You need to have the manual for the printer setup. Once it is connected to your network. You will be assigning an IP address for the printer. You need to add it on your printer list using its ip address. Once connected, try to go to the printer itself. Look at the menu and look for the scan folder. The scan folder must contain the ip address of the computer you are sending the copy to and also the exact location of the folder it will be saved. Onced setup, all you have to do is to press the scan button then it will automatically save it to your preferred computer folder. Please be also noted about the file formats that your scanner will create. Usually, people uses jpg,jpeg but i recommend .Tiff cause it won't loose the quality of the scanned picture or document
