Unable to scan docs to email

HP Recommended
Laser Jet MFP M130fw
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My Laser Jet MFP M130fw printer gives the following message when I attempt to "Scan to e-mail"...."This feature requires the printer to be connected to a network.   Connect the printer to a network and try again."   How do I connect the printer to a network.    Please keep in mind I am a little old (79!) lady just learning all this stuff.   Thank you all in advance.

Hi @1239872,


I'd like to help!


Connect the printer to the Wi-Fi network

Before you can wirelessly print, connect the printer to the same local wireless network your computer or mobile device is on. These steps also apply if you changed your internet service provider or installed a new router and need to reconnect the printer.


Wireless printing does not work over limited guest networks in places such as college dorms and hotels. Use a USB cable or connect with Wi-Fi Direct instead.

  1. If you received an Enter the WPS PIN for your printer message, click Cancel in the window, and then continue with these steps.

  2. Place the printer near the Wi-Fi router.

  3. Turn on the printer and make sure ink cartridges are installed and paper is loaded in the main tray.

  4. Connect the printer to the local network.

    Printers with a touchscreen control panel:

    1. On the printer, select Restore Network Settings (or similar) from the Wireless , Settings , or Restore Settings menu.

    2. Get the network name (SSID) and password. Go to Finding Your Wireless Password for more information.

    3. Select Wireless Setup Wizard from the Wireless, Settings, or Network Setup menu, and then select your network name and enter the password

To setup scan to email follow the below steps -


Before you can scan to email, you must configure your email with a local email client, such as the Windows Mail app, Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, or Windows Live Mail. If you already have a local client configured on your computer or do not want to scan to email, skip to the next step.

  • Windows Mail app is pre-installed on all Windows 10 computers. Search Windows for mail, open the app, and then add your email address. If you are using Windows 8, go to How to set up email account in the Mail app in Windows 8.1 (in English).
  • Microsoft Outlook is available for purchase at the Microsoft Store (in English), either individually or as part of the Microsoft Office Suite. Go to How to set up an Internet email account in Outlook 2013 or 2016 (in English) for instructions to add your email.
  • Mozilla Thunderbird is available for download at Mozilla Thunderbird (in English). Follow the on-screen prompts to install Thunderbird and add your email.
  • Windows Live Mail is no longer available to download but still works if you already have it. Make sure the email you want to scan to is added to Live Mail.


Step 1 Setup Scan to Email -

1.) Click Start, and then click Programs.

2.) Click HP, click the name of the printer, and then click Scan to Email Wizard.

6.) To require a PIN to be entered on the printer control panel before the printer can send an email, enter a 4-digit PIN in the Security PIN field, and then re-enter the PIN in the Confirm Security PIN field, and then click Next.

7.) On the 2. Authenticate page, enter the SMTP Server and Port Number.

8.) If you are using Google™ Gmail for email service, select the Always use secure connection (SSL/TLS) check box.

9.) Select the Maximum Size of Email from the drop-down menu.

10.) If the SMTP server requires authentication to send an email, select the Email Log-in Authentication check box, and then enter the User ID and Password, and then click Next.

11.) On the 3. Configure page, to automatically copy the sender on email messages sent from the profile, select Include sender in all email messages sent out successfully from the printer, and then click Next.

12.) On the 4. Finish page, review the information and verify all the settings are correct. If there is an error, click the Back button to correct the error. If the settings are correct, click the Save and Test button to test the configuration.

13.) When the Congratulations message displays, click Finish to complete the configuration.


Step 2 Scan to Email -
