Xerox WC 3220 scan to e-mail problem with external smtp server(ISP). I am trying to configure the scanner to send mail. I follow up the instructions in the manual. When I try to test it I got smtp error ...


You can always find answers to your Xerox questions at www.xerox.com/support .

The 3220 does NOT support SSL, please verify if your email service is requiring SSL transmission. (Port 445 or 587 are indicators of SSL email requirements.) There are free email providers that will still send on port 25 without SSL. Xerox does not provide a list however so you will need to research these yourself.

Instructions for setup scan to email below:
Configure the Machine for Scan to E-mail
IMPORTANT: Obtain the following information from your e-mail service provider before configuring the machine for Scan to E-Mail.
  1. What is the host name or IP address of the SMTP server?
  2. What port number does that SMTP server require?
  3. Does the server require authentication login? If so, what format does the server expect the login? (Does the server require the full e-mail address or just the part before the @ sign?)
  4. Does the e-mail server require POP3 before SMTP authentication? If so, obtain the POP3 settings (POP3 host name or IP address, port number, and login name/password).
  5. Does the server require SSL or TLS encryption? If so, ask your e-mail provider to provide you with an e-mail server that does not use SSL or TLS encryption as the printer does not support SSL/TLS encryption for e-mail authentication.

    NOTES:
    • If you are provided with a new e-mail server to use, questions 1 - 7 will need to be answered again.
    • Xerox does not provide a list of e-mail providers that do not require SSL/TLS encryption for e-mail authentication.
    • If unable to find an e-mail service that does not require SSL or TLS encryption, See theRelated Items below for information on how to Install the Network Scan program for a Windows OS or how to Install the USB Scan Driver for a Macintosh OS. Once the scanned file is stored on your computer, it can then be e-mailed from your computer as an attached item/file in a new e-mail.
  6. What is the attachment size limit on the account on that server?
  7. What 'From' address will the printer use for Scan to E-mail? The From address should be a valid e-mail address for the e-mail server that the printer will use. Ask the e-mail provider if authentication is required if the login name (above) is allowed to be used for the From address the printer will use.

    If you do not know the answer to the questions above, contact the people that control the e-mail server you want the machine to use for Scan to E-mail. The following parties can provide you with additional assistance:
    • If the e-mail server is inside your company's network, contact the E-mail Server Administrator to obtain the required settings.
    • If the e-mail server is outside your company, contact the Technical Support for that e-mail service to obtain the required settings. This may be your Internet Service Provider (ISP), or a 3rd party E-mail Service Provider.
Configure the Machine's E-mail Settings Using CentreWare Internet Services (CWIS)
After you have obtained the above information, configure the machine's e-mail settings using CWIS.
  1. Access CWIS. See the Related Items below for additional information.
  2. Click on the [Properties] link.
  3. In the Properties section on the left side of the window, click on the [+] symbol next to theProtocols folder to expand the list of options.
  4. Click on the [SMTP Server] link.
  5. Click on the [IP Address] or [Host Name] radio button.
  6. Enter the IP address or domain (host) name of the SMTP (e-mail) server in the field provided.

    NOTE: If you use an IP address for the SMTP server, verify that the IP address for the server will not change. If the SMTP's server IP address changes, the machine will be unable to Scan to E-mail until the machine's SMTP Server address entry is edited with the new SMTP server IP address. If necessary, contact your E-mail Administrator to verify how the IP address has been assigned to the SMTP server.

    NOTE: If using the domain (host) name, make sure DNS is enabled on the machine. By default, DNS is disabled. To enable and configure DNS settings, click on the Properties tab, click on the TCP/IP link under the Protocols folder, enter the required DNS settings for your network in the DNS/DDNS field, and then click on [Save Changes]. Contact your Network Administrator to obtain the correct DNS settings.
  7. Enter the port number used by the e-mail server, from 1 to 65535, in the field provided. The default port number is 25. If you use an IP address for the SMTP server, verify that the IP address for the server will not change.

    NOTE: If you use an IP address for the SMTP server, verify that the IP address for the server will not change. If the SMTP's server IP address changes, the machine will be unable to Scan to E-mail until the machine's SMTP Server address entry is edited with the new SMTP server IP address. If necessary, contact your E-mail Administrator to verify how the IP address has been assigned to the SMTP server.
  8. If authentication is required, insert a check mark in the SMTP Requires Authentication check box.
  9. In the SMTP Server Login Name field, enter the SMTP login name.
  10. In the SMTP Server Password field, enter the SMTP password and then retype the same password in the Verify Password field.
  11. If the E-mail server requires POP3 before SMTP authentication, continue with step 13. Otherwise skip to step 17.
  12. If POP3 before SMTP authentication is required, insert a check mark in the SMTP requires POP3 Before SMTP Authentication check box.
  13. In the POP3 Server and Port field, enter the IP address or domain (host) name of the SMTP (e-mail) server and the port number. The default port number is 110.
  14. In the POP3 Server Login Name field, enter the POP3 login name.
  15. In the POP3 Server Password enter the POP3 password and then retype the same password in the Verify Password field.
  16. Click on the [Save Changes] button.
  17. In the Properties section on the left side of the window, click on the [+] symbol next to the E-mailfolder to expand the list of options.
  18. Click on the [E-mail] link.
  19. Click on the [E-mail Setup] link.
  20. In the Default [From:] Address field, enter the from E-mail address that the printer will use for sending E-mail.

    NOTE: If you do not want the from address that the printer will use to send E-mail to be automatically copied on any E-mail that is sent from the printer, make sure that the check box next to Always prompt for file format setup before scanning is not checked. Additionally, the following default settings can be set for Scan to E-mail:
    • Default Original Type - Available options are: Text, Text/Photo, and Photo

I am unable to setup my email wizard in my samsung corby


Standard instructions for email inbox setup:

i have finished my corby pro email settings & i can send and recieve emails. the problem with only recieving & not able to send is the confusion between port numbers. in secure connection box three options available ' off ', ' SSL ', ' TLS '. use only SSL or TLS because the port numbers for SSL & TLS differs. just try this & you will be able to send and recieve emails.

                                                    SMTP port - 465

                                                    POP3 port - 995

Enable POP in Gmail. Don't forget to click Save Changes when you're done.Configure your client to match the settings below:Incoming Mail (POP3) Server - requires SSL:pop.gmail.com
Use SSL: Yes
Port: 995Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - requires TLS or SSL:smtp.gmail.com (use authentication)
Use Authentication: Yes
Port for TLS/STARTTLS: 587
Port for SSL: 465Account Name:your full email address (including @gmail.com or@your_domain.com)Email Address:your email address (username@gmail.com orusername@your_domain.com)Password:your Gmail password

Unless you're using recent mode to download mail to multiple clients, make sure you've opted not to leave messages on the server. Your Gmail settings determine whether or not messages stay on the server, so this setting in your client won't affect how Gmail handles your mail.

Please note that if your client does not support SMTP authentication, you won't be able to send mail through your client using your Gmail address.

Also, if you're having trouble sending mail but you've confirmed that encyrption is active for SMTP in your mail client, try to configure your SMTP server on a different port: 465 or 587.

You're now ready to use POP with your Gmail address.

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.

The message could not be sent because the server rejected the sender's e-mail address. The sender's e-mail address was 'fkb@ameritech.net'. Subject '', Account: 'pop.attyahoo.com', Server:...


One problem is that the incoming (POP) mail server shown in the error message appears to be incorrect. The server address should be "pop.att.yahoo.com" (with a period between "att" and "yahoo"). The incorrect mail server address may interfere with authentication of the sender's email address, which is needed before the outgoing message is sent.

The "530 authentication" message indicates your outgoing (SMTP) server likely requires "server authentication". Also, the "Port 25" message indicates your email program is currently trying to send via Port 25, with no SSL; but Ameritech/Yahoo accounts appears to use Port 465 with SSL enabled.

See more on sever settings for "ameritech.net" users:
http://www.dslreports.com/faq/5535
https://motorola-global-portal.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61941/~/i886---at%26t,-bellsouth,-sbcglobal,-ameritech-email-settings

I would suggest you check the settings for your Ameritech email account in your email program. You may need to correct several settings. The steps to access account settings are somewhat different for various email programs (Outlook, Windows Live Mail, Thunderbird, etc.). You should be able to find guidance in the "help" section of your email program.

I am tying to set up yahoo account on thunderbird. i can send email but not receive.. i have tried changing server settings and port settings


Much more common is a sending issue. Often you have to send through your ISP server, contact them for what that server is, if you have sending issues.

I found directions for Outlook, which should be similar to Thunderbird:

Look closely at requires authentication settings....

Note: You must be a Yahoo! Mail Plus user to read Yahoo! Mail in an email reader program such as Microsoft Outlook. Click here for information about subscribing to Yahoo! Mail Plus.
To read your Yahoo! Mail Plus using Microsoft Outlook 2002 or 2003, follow these steps:
  1. From the Tools menu, select Email Accounts.
  2. Select Add a new email account and click Next.
  3. Select POP3 and click Next.
  4. Enter the following information:
    • User Information

      Your Name: Type your name as you'd like it to appear when you send an email message.

      E-Mail Address: Type your Yahoo! Mail Plus email address (for example, testing80@yahoo.com).
    • Server Information

      Incoming mail server (POP3): Type plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com.

      Outgoing mail server (SMTP): Type plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com.
    • Login Information

      User Name: Type your Yahoo! ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com").

      Password: Type your Yahoo! password.
    • Select the Remember Password checkbox if you don't want Outlook to prompt you for your password each time you check your mail.
    • Do not select the Require logon using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) checkbox.
  5. Click More Settings. The Internet E-mail Settings dialog box appears.
  6. Select the Outgoing Server tab:
    • Select the My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication checkbox.
    • Make sure that Use same settings as my incoming mail server is selected.
  7. Click the Advanced tab:
    • Under Incoming Server (POP3), select the This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) checkbox. The number in the Incoming Server (POP3) field usually changes automatically from 110 to 995. If it doesn't, type 995.
    • In the Outgoing Server (SMTP) field, type 465. Under Outgoing Server (SMTP), select the This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) checkbox.
    • If you want to save your Yahoo! Mail messages on both the Yahoo! Mail server and on your computer, select the Leave a copy of messages on the server checkbox. If you want your messages to be deleted from the Yahoo! server once Outlook has downloaded them onto your computer, leave the box unchecked.

      Note: After your messages are deleted from the server, we cannot retrieve them.
  8. Click OK to close the Internet E-mail Settings dialog box.
  9. Click Finish to close the Add New E-mail Account dialog box.
  10. Click Close to close the Account Settings dialog box.
Troubleshooting tips
If you still can't send Yahoo! Mail from Outlook, you might be accessing the Internet through an ISP that is blocking the SMTP port. If this is the case, try using port 587 when sending email via Yahoo!'s SMTP server. To make this change:
  1. From the Tools menu, select Account Settings. The Account Settings dialog box appears.
  2. Select your Yahoo! Mail Plus account and click Properties. The Change E-mail Account dialog box appears.
  3. Click More Settings. The Internet E-mail Settings dialog box appears.
  4. Click the Advanced tab.
  5. In the Outgoing Server (SMTP) box, type 587.
  6. Click Apply, and then click OK to close the Internet E-mail Settings dialog box.
  7. Click Close to close the Account Settings dialog box.

I can recieve email but I cant send any email out


If you can successfully receive e?mail messages, but can't send messages, then Windows Mail is having problems connecting to the outgoing e?mail server that's used to send messages. These are likely possibilities:
  • If you've never been able to send e?mail successfully using Windows Mail, your e?mail account is probably not set up properly. First, follow the steps to verify your e?mail account information in the "I can't receive e?mail" section of this help topic. If you verify that your e?mail account information is entered properly, you might need to change your authentication settings so that when sending mail, you sign in using your e?mail user name and password. Check with your e?mail provider to see if it requires authentication for sending e?mail.
    To use authentication when sending e?mail
    1. Open Windows Mail by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows Mail.
    2. Click the Tools menu, and then click Accounts.
    3. Under Mail, click your e?mail account, and then click Properties.
    4. Click the Servers tab, and then, under Outgoing Mail Server, select the My server requires authentication check box.
    5. If the account information that you use to send e?mail is not the same information that you use to receive messages, click Settings, click Log on using, and then enter the user name and password that you use to send e?mail.
  • Many Internet service providers (ISPs) require you to be directly connected to their network to use their outgoing e?mail servers. If you're using a mobile PC and connect to the Internet using a different ISP (such as when using a wireless connection in a hotel), you might be able to receive, but not send, e?mail. Some ISPs will allow you to send e?mail when connected to a different provider if you use authentication when sending. Follow the previous steps to use authentication when sending e?mail. If your ISP doesn't allow this, you'll need to find out the name of the outgoing mail server for the ISP you're currently using, and then change the settings in Windows Mail to use it.
    To change the outgoing mail server settings
    1. Open Windows Mail by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows Mail.
    2. Click the Tools menu, and then click Accounts.
    3. Under Mail, click your e?mail account, and then click Properties.
    4. Click the Servers tab, and then enter the new mail server in the Outgoing Mail (SMTP) box.
    5. If the new outgoing mail server requires authentication, under Outgoing Mail Server, select the My server requires authentication check box.
    6. Click Settings, click Log on using, and then enter the user name and password for the outgoing mail server.

E mail error550 I am not receiving or sending


You need to check your outgoing mail server name and the authentication associated with the account you are using. In other words, your email client (like Outlook or Thunderbird) has an outgoing mail server name and an account name and password setting. Try this:
Open your Outlook (or other mailer) settings (Tools > Accounts)
Go to View/Change email account for the email account you are having problems with.
Check that the SMTP Server is set to yourdomain.com
Go into the "More settings", "Outgoing Server" tab and make sure that the option "My server requires authentication" for the Outgoing server is checked ON. Save and close all windows. Try again.

It will be slightly different for other mail programs, but you should see the same type of information, but maybe in other tabs/windows.

Mozilla Thunderbird setup


    Google Gmail Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP): smtp.gmail.com
    The Gmail SMTP server requires authentication (use the same settings as for the incoming mail server)
    The Google Gmail SMTP Server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) on port 465.
    GMail uses POP3 over an SSL connection, so make sure your email client supports encrypted SSL connections.
      Google Gmail Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop.gmail.com (SSL enabled, port 995)Outgoing Mail Server - use the SMTP mail server address provided by your local ISP or smtp.gmail.com (SSL enabled, port 465)
