    I have the same problem and even after configuring all the SMTP and email settings I keep getting an SMTP Error: Invalid SMTP configuration. It used to work for me before, and every now and then it would lose it's SMTP configuration and i would just re-configure it and be back in business, but since last week that hasn't been the case. Please help.

That is not true i work as a IT Spec for the Kentucky Army National Guard and we have over 20 M20I series printers in which we have set up to scan to email. None of these printers are hooked up directly to the computer and they all have the ablity to scan to email. if you printer dose not seem to have the ability they you will probally just need to update the os. Here are the steps to get it set up.

  1. Connect the printer to the network
  2. Print a network config sheet
  3. use IE to connet to the web based interface useing the printers IP
  4. Click on the properties tab
  5. hit the little plus sign by connectivity
  6. do the same with protocols
  7. find and click on smtp server
  8. add ip address in the ip address and if your server requires athenticating type in the user name and password
  9. if for some reason the maxium message size has undefined then you will need to complete reset the printer or you will get an error it needs to have options that can be selected.
  10. now go to services
  11. then email settings
  12. select apropriate modes and the default from address
  13. if you want to set permissions to the device you can do so under user authintcation
  14. you can also set up the LAB and GAB
Note:
some web sites may not allow you to suer this function one alternitive is to set up a local smtp server on your network and create a mail box for yourself then you will just need to put your smtp server address in the instructions listed in step 8. I hope this helps.

What works for me is clearing the system memory, then re-configuring the SMTP and email parameters again. This is the only thing that's consistently working for me now whenever this machine gets into this funky state...

    what works for me is clearing the memory using the SysAdmin tools on the machine settings (physically on the machine, not the web interface). Then after clearing the memory I use the web interface to reconfigure the SMTP and email parameters, then it's back to working for a while. This is the only solution that works consistently for me.

    HTH.

I currently manage 350 Xerox devices on the NGB network for the Texas National Guard. It is not possible to Scan to e-mail without an internet connection and a SMTP server. You can, however, scan to desktop when your device is hooked up via USB. The above poster is wrong. The scan to e-mail function does with with a standard CAT5 plugged into the ethernet port. You just have to configure the TCP/IP, LDAP and SMTP configuration properly on the device.

The scanning on a M20i can only be done with the USB or Parallel port. I have worked on those for years and they only work with those 2 ports. It is not designed to work with an Ethernet connection. Believe me I wish it did, would save tons of problems. I have talked directly to engineers at Xerox and their answer is , it is what it is. Frustrating.

Make sure that you go to the web interface on the WorkCenter and specify a usable DNS Primary and Secondary. This is not an option that you can set on the physical unit. In addition, make sure that you set the proper SMTP user ID and Password as you would on Outlook or other e-mail clients.

LSU error displayed on Xerox M20i


LSU stands for Laser Scanner Unit. It comes up only if you are trying to access scanner services like scanning a document, using fax or simple scanning.

If it's coming continuously you might need to check connectors within the scanner. Best way is to call a technician from Xerox or take it to their store.

WorkCenter M118 it stop sending scan over email. Insted of sending it print the NDR with error E11202


Solution : Make Sure the SMTP (Mail) Server is an Open Relay Server or Uses POP-Before-SMTP Authentication The mail server being used must be an Open Relay server or use POP before SMTP authentication. If the mail server being used requires SMTP authentication, the scan to e-mail process will fail. The WorkCentre is unable to access the mail server when SMTP authentication is required. Contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) or System Administrator for additional information.
NOTE: The WorkCentre was designed to send e-mail through internal corporate mail servers. In most cases, if using your Internet Service Provider (ISP) mail server, the scan to e-mail process will fail because most ISP mail servers require SMTP authentication to send mail. Contact your ISP for additional information.

I get "Send Error (SMTP)"


It took me a while to figure this out. Your 3220 must be connected to ethernet (I havent tried it with the 3220 connected directly to the computer). Also, this works with a free email with domain Godaddy account, so YMMV.
1. Open your web browser and navigate to the 3220's CentreWare IS. 2. Click on "Protocol/SMTP Server" 3. Check "Host Name" 4. Type smtpout.secureserver.net/80 for server/port 5. Check "SMTP requires authentication" 6. Enter your username/pw 7. Click "Save Changes"
If you are asked for a username/pw to save the settings, the 3220's default are admin/1111.
Now click on "E-mail/E-mail Setup" on the navigation. Make sure your default [From:] address is your sender email address (they must match). Click "Save Changes"
As a final recommendation, I strongly suggest that you create your address book (E-mal/Local Address Book on the navigation) to make it easier to send by email, otherwise you will have to manually enter email addresses using the 3220's keypad (very slow!). Create groups for sending scans to several emails without having to select each individual email from the 3220's panel (also slow!).
Hope this helps.

Xerox 7232 workcentere cannot send emails


Judging from what you've said, I would say this is a setting on the printer. You need to make sure you have the outgoing address correct. Basically go into your printer settings with your E-mail server IP's.

How to change the default scan resolution on M20i?


You need to go to the printers webpage from your Web Browser http://192.168.1.100 or something like that. Then, go into Properties tab, and then the Services Dropdown. Under that, go into Email Settings and then Email Setup. Change your DPI to as high as 600dpi, then scroll to the bottom and hit save. You'll be prompted for a password which is either Admin / 1111 or 11111 / x-admin

Xerox M20i scan to e-mail


You can not scan with a M20i with an Ethernet cat 5 cable. It can ONLY be done via a USB or parallel cable.

If you don't believe me, which many on here wont accept the truth, here is the note from the Xerox documentation..

The WorkCentre can scan a document via Direct Scanning using a USB or Parallel Port connection only.
