Scan to Email Application not found

HP Recommended

Unable to email my scan from HP 4650.   Program indicates "no email application found on computer", although I have Mozilla Thunderbird.

Your installed mail program / client must have the appropriate Default set (MAILTO protocol).

 

Double check the following:

 

Set Default Programs

  • Control Panel > icon view > Default Programs > Set your Default Programs >
  • Scroll down, Select Thunderbird program in the left column >
  • Choose Defaults for this program > Select (at least) MAILTO / Send mail > Save

 

OR Assign MAILTO protocol (Alternate method)

  • Control Panel > icon view > Default Programs > Associate a file type or protocol with a program >
  • Wait for the menu selections to fill in (a few seconds) >
  • Select (highlight) a file type at random (click somewhere inside the menu window) >
  • Type (the letter) m > Menu scrolls to the MAILTO protocol (item is highlighted)
  • Change program > Select Thunderbird from the list > Close

For Dragon Fur

Thunderbird was designated as the default for MAIL-TO.  I switched to Microsoft MAIL and still no luck. Then switched back. Tried same on another Windows 10 computer I have and get the same message "Unable to find email program on computer".  End result - have two HP computers with Windows 10 unable to scan & email the scan from the HP 4650,  No problem scanning and saving to Documents.

  • If you have not done so, assign the printer a Static IP address and static DNS setup.

  • If you have not done so, disable "two-step" security on the email address you are using.  If you dislike doing this, set up another "less sensitive" email address to use with Scan-to-Email.

 

  • If you have not done so, check online for the precise smtp settings needed for you POP mail client.

 

  • If you have not done so, add / edit and then test the Scan-to-Email Profile as set up in the Wizard.

 

Printer Assistant (shortcut on the Desktop) > tab Print, Scan, and Fax >
Scan to Email Wizard > If using, enter your printer’s Access password >
Outgoing Email Profiles > Add, Edit, or Delete Email address profile(s) >

Click on the Profile (to highlight) and select Test

 

 

  • If you have not done so, try another Scan program to accomplish the task.  Without the basic email setup working, this is likely not going to help; try or not as desired.
