    1. SMTP Server Address: This field displays the Host Name or IP address of an SMTP mail server (outgoing E-mail Server) on your network. (Ex: smtp.example.net or 192.0.0.1) If you are using the DNS name of the SMTP E-mail server, you must use the FQDN (Full Qualified Domain Name) such as smtp.example.net
       
    2. SMTP Port: Specify the destination port number of the SMTP server that you will connect to.
       
    3. SMTP Server Authentication Method: Specify the authentication method for the SMTP server. This value determines which type of method is used to authenticate the user to the SMTP server. The options are as follows:

       

      • None: Does not authenticate to the SMTP Server.
         
      • SMTP-AUTH: Uses the method which is SMTP Authentication. If this method is used, it is necessary to set the SMTP account details correctly.
         
      • POP before SMTP: Uses the method "POP before SMTP". If this method is used, it is necessary to set POP3 account settings correctly.

       

    4. SMTP-AUTH Account Name/Password: Specify a name and password to be validated with the SMTP server and retype the password for comparison. To set for no password, enter a single space.
       
    5. SMTP over SSL/TLS: You can choose the encryption method between the machine and the SMTP server. You may check or uncheck Verify Server Certificate, which verifies the certificate between the machine and the SMTP server.
       
    6. Printer E-mail Address: Enter the e-mail address of the printer. If an administrator address has not been correctly entered, the Notification Mail will be sent to the printer. If you do not set a printer e-mail address, the Notification Mail is not sent to the administrator.
       
    7. POP3 Server Address: This field determines the host name or IP address of the POP3 server (incoming e-mail server). (Ex: pop.example.net -or- 192.0.0.1)
       
      If you are using the DNS name of the POP3 E-mail server you must use the FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) such as pop.example.net.
       
    8. POP3 Port: Specify the destination port number of the POP3 server that you will connect to.
       
    9. Mailbox Name/Password: Specify a mailbox name and password on the POP3 server where the Internet print jobs are to be retrieved. To set for no password, enter a single space
       
    10. Use APOP: Check this box to specify whether APOP is used or not when logging in to the POP3 server.
       
    11. POP3 over SSL/TLS: You can choose the encryption method between the machine and the POP3 server. You may check or uncheck Verify Server Certificate, which verifies the certificate between the machine and the POP3 server.
       
    12. Segmented Message Timeout: If a print job is separated into multiple email messages using the segmented message feature of the print server, this value indicates how long the print server will wait for all of the segments of the message to arrive.

     

  7. Click Submit. You will briefly see a message stating: Data updated successfully.
