Scan to Email address

[ Edited ]
Product Name: ffice Jet 6830
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

FYI    When you send an email with Scan to Eml on your printer, the From: address that shows the person you are sending it to is NOT your printers email with your name. Your email only shows up in the body of the email! The recipient may never get that far. If I saw eprintcenter I don't think I would open the email and it would probably be in my junk mail. HPO has told me that there is no way for them to chage the From address with this service. I recommend that if you want to be sure your email gets opened by whom you are sending it to. Scan from your computer, save it and attach it to your email account.
