Hi Expert

I have got AD environment with exchange 2003 I have got network printer Samsung CLX-6210 FX How can I configure " scan to email" option for a domain users (Outlook with exchange)

I have read couple forums they advise that I have to create an email address for the printer and I did ,through Active directory Users and Computer I created an account for printer and I assigned an email address for that account : samsung6210@forum.org
Password : 123456

I tried to read the user manual on Samsung CD but unfortunately I just found below quote


Setting up an e-mail account
To scan and send an image as an email attachment, you need to set up
network parameters using SyncThru™ Web Service.
1. Enter your machine’s IP address as the URL in a browser and click
Go to access the web site of your machine.
2. Click Machine Settings and E-mail Setup.
3. Select IP Address or Host Name.
4. Enter the IP address in dotted decimal notation or as a host name.
5. Enter the server port number, from 1 to 65535.
The default port number is 25.
6. Check the box next to SMTP Requires Authentication to require
authentication.
7. Enter the SMTP server login name and password.
8. Click Apply.

>> Re: Samsung CLX-6210FX Scan to email setup
At my job Scan to Email is very important, so I will try to help as much as I can although I do not have the same printer as you do. It should not be that much different at all though. This is what I did.

1. I used an existing email account on our AD although you can use a different one if you would like. The information to fill out on our printer is the following: You can see a screen shot here: http://i46.tinypic.com/20qxg2g.png
- SMTP Gateway: This is the server's address (192.168.1.xxx)
- Port: Usually 25
- Authentication: Username and password for the AD account

2. Go into the Server and open the Exchange System Manager. Expand your Server, then Protocols, then select the protocol you are using. We use SMTP so when looking at the properties, there is a section called Relay, and it allows you to type in the address of computers that may use the protocol to relay email. Type in the IP Address if the printer and apply the changes.

That's really all that is required, should work.

Hi Joshua

Thanks for your help and effort.

1. I used an existing email account on our AD although you can use a different one if you would like

Do you mean that you have dedicated (created) a new account for your printer ? or you have used a doamin user account (randomly you have chosen one ) that is laredy exist and you have used his/her email address for the printer authentication (i.e. Authentication : Username and password for the AD account) ?

We use SMTP so when looking at the properties, there is a section called Relay, and it allows you to type in the address of computers that may use the protocol to relay email. Type in the IP Address if the printer and apply the changes.


Is the option " Relay " that you was referring to as in the snapshot below ( from our server) ??

Just to be sure, let me specify why we use scan to email and that way we don't get confused just in case you are planning to do a different setup.

Basically, we have to send invoices and information about our products to our customers, so we have an email info@ourcompany.com When we scan to email, the printer uses the information I showed you in the image. It uses the info account and it's password, and then when the email is sent, it shows up in your Inbox from info@ourcompany.com

Essentially, all of our employees send documents that have been 'scanned to email' using info@ourcompany.com

And yes, the image you showed me does show where you add the address of any computer or device that wishes to use the protocol in order to send email.

Let me know how it goes.

What I did I created an account within the AD called " Samsung printer " with an email address associated to it called : smasung6210@mycomany.com

we have got info@mycomany.com account as well.,,,,this account is used by different employees.

When you explained to me what you have used for your printer authentication, I realized that I could have used info account as well rather than creating the smasung printer account.

And using info account to be " From " : Address would make more sense than using samsung6210

Correct. You can use info or any account in Active Directory.

In AD you can change the name you would like to appear for the info email address. So in AD look at the properties for that user and change the display name. So you will receive an email from info@yourcompany.com but it will have the display name next to the email, so for example:

From: Our Company Name [info@yourcompany.com]

Work's out quite nicely :)

I did test and yes I can send an email for scanned document from samsung to any user domain,,,,though I have not tried to send to an external email (i.e not within my company domain).

But I did not add the ip address for the printer (192.168.0.40) as stated in the quote above and still it is working ,,,

Interesting.

It should work for external addresses as you are using the SMTP on the Server - this is where it may require you to add the printer in the delay (it's possible but can't remember).

Glad we're making progress :D

Hi Joshua,

Thanks for your answers to Zillah.. they were helpful for me to read. I have tried following your instructions but unfortunately have not been successful.

Essentially I am trying to setup scan-to-email on the CLX-6210FX, specifically to my gmail address.

As guided by this google's website (http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=13287), I have setup my SMTP server as follows:

IP Address or Host Name : Host name
SMTP Server and Port : smtp.gmail.com; port = 465
SMTP Requires Authentication : Yes
SMTP Server Login Name : ******@gmail.com
SMTP Server Password : *****
SMTP Server Connection Timeout : 30 seconds
Maximum Message Size : 10 mb

POP Before SMTP Setup
SMTP requires POP3 Before SMTP Authentication :
IP Address or Host Name : Host Name

POP3 Server and Port : pop.gmail.com
POP3 Server Login Name : *****@gmail.com
POP3 Server Password : *****

The printer however continues to show a connection error.

Are you able to shed any light as to what I have done incorrectly?

Sorry I am not IT-based and would appreciate any help I can get!

Best wishes,
Dean

Hi Dean,

You may want to try other settings for Gmail. I checked my settings for my outgoing SMTP and I am using port 587 instead of 465, with TLS enabled.

Gmail has the following instructions: http://www.google.com/help/hc/images/gmail_77689d_en.gif

I have tried these settings as a test and I was able to get it to work as well. With Gmail you may have to play around to try and get the correct settings for the Outgoing but those I provided should work. Make sure you match the type of encryption on the printer settings as well.
