You need to find where to enter the settings for an smtp server. (simple mail transport protocol) Most internet service providers allow clients to use their smtp server. For instance, for Shaw in Canada to smtp server is mail.shaw.ca. Some will require authentication in which case you will need to have a valid account with that provider.
If the cartridge was left in it during an extended period of time (we'll say three months or longer) without use, it can damage the print head in a way that is irreparable. At four years old, unfortunately, it is probably cheaper to replace the printer than to have the head professionally repaired. Dry ink is the great enemy of inkjet printers.
If you clicked the cleaner multiple times with no luck, the only thing besides replacing the printer I would suggest would be to try another print cartridge. Unfortunately, if this isn't the problem you've just wasted whatever the cartridge costs. BUT if this unit directly touches the cartridge to the paper to print, it should repair the problem.
Wow, that's a really old EPSON printer. The life expectancy of a EPSON printer is just three years, after that, the printer wouldn't work because of the clogged permanent printing head. The authorized service center is unable to repair it because the spares are no longer supplied. Throw it to a recycling center.
The first error was waste ink near full which you can bypass with resume button, now the absorber is full which means it won't print until you have the drain pack replaced and the counter reset by a shop.
After uninstalling and installing the printer driver, to no avail, I called a mobile 'geek' service and they fixed it, for a fee. The original vendor "Future Shop" repair and service department gave the distinct impresson that this was something much below their dignity to take in for service, (thanks alot).
