I am trying to download the Printable "Scan to Email" onto my Color LaserJet Pro MFP M177fw but It keeps throwing an error?
When I bought the printer (yesterday) i was told that I could set it up to Scan in a document and have it automatically send out as an email to a recipient. How do I accomplish this?

Welcome to the HP Support forums. I understand that you would like to learn how to scan to email using your Laserjet Pro MFP M177fw printer.
You didn't mention which operating system that you are using so I've included the links for all the supported operating systems on how to scan. There is a section titled "How to scan with HP software" and in there you can find a sub-section titled "How to scan to email". It is in the sub-section that you will find the instructions you need to follow to be able to scan to your email.

I have a similar question but it didn't resolved by the above solution.
Just got a HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M177fw and successfully set it up with ePrint driver for wirelessly printing. My question is : Are there ways to scan a document, and send to an email, without a computer physically connected to this new printer which is advertized as a wireless MFP?
On the main screen of this printer, there's no "scan" bottom. I also see the apps named "scan to email" and wondering if I can "install" it and use it as a "scan" bottom, and scan documents wirelessly.
It's a good printer, and thanks for your hard work!

Step by step -
I want to walk up to my M177FW
place a document on it
scan it to either an email address or a folder on a server on my network
My old unit the OfficeJet 6500 could do this - i cannot believe the newer tech cannot. Please tell me what i'm doing wrong and please do not ask me to walk to a PC and run special software. Use the scenario above - thank you

all urls dont work (anymore).
it result in a standard help page, where you have to set your origine and language first.
it doesnt (re)direct to a forum thread.
the urls point to this site:
I've bought my MFP M177fw this week, and am installing it at the moment.
I used this help:
In the windows startmenu is NOT a "scan to email wizard"
the video says: if there is no "scan to email wizard" than the printer isn't installed right. so i installed it for the third or fourth time by now.
I also tried the MFP's webserver, by connecting to in with the browser AND with the "HP device toolbox" from the windows start menu. (I think that it is called that way in english.) The both DON'T have a scan tab, so no way to configure scan to email.
I've connected the MFP wireless AND wired to the router/internet device. In this device I've turned universal plug and play on.
I'm not sure the HP MFP connects to the internet, it connect to the router fine: I can connect to its webserver, print and scan from/with an laptop (wirelessly connected to the same router).
Please help me out, I'm getting a bit dissapointed about this device

Did HP enable Scan to email on the Color LaserJet Pro MFP M177fw? That is, scanning direct from the printer without having to use a PC? All my (very) old printers used to do it and I find it very odd that this one doesn't. I just bought the printer (Oct 2019) and even uploaded latest firmware. When I bought this MFP I assumed that this is one of its basic features. It is VERY annoying having to go to my PC each time I want to scan something.
