Setup SMTP for copiers/scanners


If you have a copier/scanner it may have the ability to send scanned documents to an email address. In most cases, SMTP must be configured for it to be able to send email.

SMTP is short for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol, and an SMTP Server is like the Post Office or UPS Store. It's the place you take your letters and packages when you want them sent to someone.

For your scanner to send a PDF to someone via email, it must send it to a SMTP server which accepts and then sends it to the destination address. Most people don't have an SMTP server on-site, so an account from an SMTP service provider like SendGrid, MailJet, SendGrid, Amazon, etc.

       

If you use Microsoft Office365, it's easy to use that as the SMTP server. If you use Google Mail, it's possible, but due to higher security requirements it's often less complicated to use another service, like SMTP2Go or MailJet.
