I am trying to "scan to e-mail", and I begin by going to the HP Utility and click on to "scan to e-mail". The setup comes on to my browser screen without a problem. However, the moment I click to start the setup, Safari will not connect to "hpecb1d7c706c2.local". So, I try another manuver, and make Chrome my default browser. Chrome basically says that we are not going there, because that url opens up to possible trespassers! So.......?

Hello, @Geary2 – Hope you are well
Thanks for engaging in the HP Forums! I see by your post that you are having issues while setting up scan to email feature on your Officejet printer. I will certainly do my best to help you fix this issue!
I would suggest you setup the email profile via printer EWS page as suggested below. Try the steps below:
- Obtain the IP address of the printer – You can touch the “wireless” icon on the printer control panel to obtain the IP address.
- Type the IP address on your web browser to obtain the printer EWS page on your computer.
- From the EWS, click the Scan tab.
- Click Scan to Email Setup.
- Click Outgoing Email Profile, click New, and then enter the email address you intend to use with this profile.
- Enter a display name that will appear on the printer's control panel to identify this email profile.
- Enter or confirm the correct SMTP server and SMTP port information.
- If you typically have to enter a username and password to log into your email account, you will want to enter this information into the email authentication fields, and then click Next.
- Enter a security PIN to restrict access to this email profile, if desired.
- Set the size for email files and specify Auto CC, if desired.
- Click Save or Save and test to complete the profile.
- Once done, touch the scan icon on your printer and select scan to email option and check for issue resolution.
