Fax forword ricoh mp171

Print documents received and forward to a specified end receiver. This is useful if, for example, you are visiting another office and would like a copy of your documents to be sent to that office.
You can also specify a "folder" as the forwarding destination.
  • To use this function, set [Forwarding] under [Administrator Tools] to [On].
  • The Forwarding function does not forward documents received with Memory Lock.
  • You can select end receivers only from among destinations programmed in the Address Book. You cannot specify programmed transfer stations as end receivers.
A fax number, e-mail address, IP-Fax destination, and folder can be set as the forwarding destination.
When you wish to change the end receivers depending on the senders, specify the end receivers by the senders, at "Program Special Sender". Documents not received from specified senders are sent to the destination specified in this function. For details about programming special sender, see "Program Special Sender".
You can set whether or not to print the forwarded documents on this machine in "Parameter Setting" (switch 11, bit 6). See "Parameter Settings".
Deleting a destination specified as a forward destination from the destination list causes the settings of the forward destination to be deleted, so they must be registered again. When a destination is changed, a document is transmitted to the new destination. If there is no destination of the specified type, you can set which destination to be used as an alternative destination in "Parameter Setting" (switch 32, bit 0). See "Parameter Settings".
You can program one of the User Function keys with operations for this function. See "General Settings/Adjust".
If you have specified a folder for forwarding, you can specify the file format used for forwarding in "Parameter Setting" (switch 21, bit 3). See "Parameter Settings".
User Parameters (switch 37, bit 4) on the Fax Features menu allows you to include the sender's name in the names of files sent to folders. However, garbling of the file name and data loss can result if the receiver's operating system cannot accept certain characters in file names. To prevent this, use User Parameters (switch 37, bit 5) to limit the file names to plain characters only. If you limit file names to plain characters only but errors still occur, disable display of the sender's name in the file name of documents forwarded to folders. For details, see "Parameter Settings".
Using the parameter setting (switches 38 and 39), you can specify the maximum number of resends that the machine attempts if it fails to forward a fax (including faxes from special senders) to a folder destination, and the interval between the resend attempts.

I need to scan documents in jpg format. I notice there is an option to choose tif/jpg but I don't seem to be able to choose the jpg option it just keeps choosing tif. How can I scan in...

Everyone above has cut and pasted from the Ricoh manual, which as any tech will tell you is worthless. There is some other setting that must be set to force the "TIFF/JPG" to toggle - hence why no one has figured it out.

I'm trying to figure out how to scan a document and send it to email using an IKON (Canon) imagerunner C3220 copier? Is this possible?

The following steps will allow you to send and receive E-mail: 1. Make sure you have all of your TCP/IP information set up (IP address, Subnet Mask, Gateway, DNS Server (if one), Host Name, and Domain name of your Domain) before you begin.
2. Enter into the Network Settings and Select E-mail/I-Fax.
3. If you are setting this up for SMTP (Simple Mail Transport Protocol) to send E-mail and I-Fax, enter the IP address or Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) of your mail server in the SMTP Server section. For example: Then enter the email address that will be the default sender in the SMTP Address field.
4. If you use POP3 and want to receive e- imageRUNNER mail and I-Faxes, fill in the IP address or FQDN of your POP3 server and the account added for the imageRUNNER-iR. The password is optional and needs to be entered if set on the e-mail account of the imageRUNNER-iR. Set the POP interval (how often the machine will log in and check for mail).
5. Reboot the device.
-If the SMTP mail server requires authentication for sending email, enter Encryption/Authentication login information (SMTP authentication via a username and password).
- For the models that do not support SMTP authentication, the administrator will need to set up a SMTP Relay.

Computers crashed due to an outage...cannot scan docs

Reboot the machine first. If that doesn't work, go to user tools - system settings - file transfer or interface settings (depending on the model) and enter and admin email address. Then go to admin tools and tell it to auto specify a sender. It is looking for who is sending the scan, not who is receiving it...

How do you remove the "sender not specified" prompt from Ricoh multifunction copiers for sending emails?

All the new generations of copiers (the big ones) have the ability to send a scan by email. That interface named "web monitor" (it's a generic name!) need to be correctly configured.
Will be to create an email address (virtual) of copier, which has an insert in the address book and to assign them a name. You choose as default sender name.
ex. email address: (
ex. name of address: name_of _scanner (Ricoh_scanner)
It is necessary for email protocols (in the email header) witch it says to the receiver: I'm mail from, please replay address is, etc.
