You receive an E-mail Transmission Failure displayed on the printer control panel, followed by a printed Scan Log.
This article shares some of the possible causes for the error codes depicted on the Scan Log.
NOTE: Not all All-In-One (AIO) or Multifunction printers (MFP) support e-mail authentication. If your printer does not, contact your E-mail Service Provider (ESP) to see other available options. You may have to perform a scan-to-pc if this is the case.
Common "Scan Log" Error Codes
Your ESP should assist with any of the following values in red:
|Error code||Possible Incorrect E-mail Configuration Settings||Recommendations|
Connection Failure: <-7>
|Incorrect Port||Enter a different port number and test again. Common ports include 465, 587 and 25.|
Connection Failure: <-10>
E-mail Server Not Set up.
Connection Failure: <-11>
Cannot resolve server address.
|Connection Failure: <-19>||Incorrect Port or SSL/TLS setting||Contact your ESP and verify SSL/TLS and Port combination, and test again.|
|Connection Failure <504>||SMTP Server Authentication set to "NTLM"||Unrecognized Authentication Type. Change Authentication to applicable Plain/Login or None.|
|Connection Failure: <530>||
|Authorization failed <534>||N.A.||
Enable your Gmail account's access for less secure apps. To do so:
|Connection Failure <535>||Username and Password not accepted.||Change Username and Password and test again.
Again, some ESPs require full e-mail address (email@example.com) and others require only the beginning Userid (hello) portion of the e-mail address.
Passwords are sensitive to spelling, capitalization, and the use of symbols and characters.
Printer to E-mail Server Communication Flow and E-mail Error Triggers
The printer initiates communication (Step 1) and closes the connection (Step 16).
See Document ID: HO3753 for an example of an inkjet All-In-One printer's E-mail configuration settings.
See Document ID: SO6865 to find out more about the E-mail Setup Wizard's "Incomplete E-mail Configuration" message as seen with inkjet printers.
See Document ID: FA840 for a sample list of Laser MFPs that do not support e-mail authentication.
