Officejet Pro 8600 scan to email

Hi

 

Is it possible to scan documents straight to email or do I always have to scan them and save them to the PC first?

 

Thanks

Re: Officejet Pro 8600 scan to email

Hi,

 

The following from Manual (pg 54) should answer your question.

 

Set up Scan to Email

You can use the printer to scan documents and send them to one or more email

addresses as attachments—without additional scanning software. You do not need to

scan files from your computer and attach them to email messages.

NOTE: Scan to Email is only supported by HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus and HP

Officejet Pro 8600 Premium.

To use the Scan to Email feature, complete the following preliminary steps:

Set the Outgoing Email Profiles

Configure the email address which will appear in the FROM portion of the email

message sent by the printer. You can add up to 10 Outgoing Email Profiles. You can

use the HP software installed on your computer to create these profiles.

Add email addresses to the Email Address Book

Manage the list of people to whom you can send email messages from the printer. You

can add up to 15 email addresses with their corresponding contact names. You can

also create email groups. To add email addresses, you must use the printer’s

embedded web server (EWS).

Configure other email options

You can configure default SUBJECT and body text that is included in all email

messages sent from the printer. To configure these options, you must use the printer’s

EWS.

Step 1: Set up the outgoing email profiles

To set up the outgoing email profile used by the printer, complete the following steps

for your operating system.

Windows

1. Open the HP printer software. For more information, see Toolbox (Windows).

2. Double-click Scanner Actions, and then double-click Scan to Email Wizard..

3. Click New, and then follow the onscreen instructions.

NOTE: After you set the Outgoing Email Profile, you can use the printer’s

embedded web server (EWS) to add more Outgoing Email Profiles, add email

addresses to the Email Address Book, and configure other email options. To open

the EWS automatically, make sure the Launch embedded web server when

finished check box is selected on the last screen of the Scan to Email Wizard.

When you click Finish, the EWS is displayed in your computer’s default web

browser. For more information about the embedded web server, see Embedded

web server

Thanks.  I can't find a scan to email wizard so can't do this.

Hi,

 

Is the printer software installed on the computer?

Re: Officejet Pro 8600 scan to email

Is there a way for the outgoing email to be posted to the Microsoft Outlook "Sent" Folder?

Re: Officejet Pro 8600 scan to email

I just bought an 8600 pro. Apparently I assumed too much about the quality that one should expect from a brand such as Hewlet Packard. 

 

1) scan to e-mail is not supported: THIS IS AN ESSENTIAL FEATURE OF A MODERN NETWORK SCANNER/PRINTER (except maybe a cheap one such as this). Without this feature, a clunky, outdated, awkward, device specific... interface is required.  I am very dissappointed by this.  Maybe this works if your network is stationary (all you have is a desktop), otherwise, I find it quite awkward.

 

Who wouldn't think that maybe they don't need the 8600 pro, but should get the 8600 pro (plus/premium) are these gasoline grades? Apparently the 8600 pro is REGULAR UNLEADED (do they use lead free solder in China???) You have to pay more for a software upgrade so you can send a .pdf to someone's e-mail address, REALLY?

 

In fact if you read through this forum some of the HP Employees apparently were not clear about this distinction. Take a look at: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Scanning-Faxing-and-Copying/does-hp-8600-pro-scan-to-email/td-p/1189237

 

2) why has HP (a previously respectable company) stooped to the practice of providing "setup cartridges" instead of a set of REAL ink cartridges? Do they have an excuse? Or do they just want to extract more cash from the customer as soon as possible by selling more "razor blades" for their "razors"???

 

In my opinion, HP has joined the ranks of so many other large corporations:

 

THEY ARE WORKING HARD TO THROW AWAY A REPUTATION EARNED BY THE HARD WORK OF THEIR FATHERS FOR SHORT TERM PROFITS.

 

THUMBS DOWN HP!!! This attitude will bite you in the end, your executives will be retired to the Hamptons and your employees will be out of a job.
