I have a Toshiba e-STUDIO4520C Printer and I'm trying to set up scan to email on it. However  I think I didn't configure it right and now it prints off any email sent to the company instead of delivering it to their inbox. Their email is hosted by a 3rd party and comes in via pop3 and they send via smtp. Any suggestion on how to get the emails to stop printing and get scan to email working? Thanks.

Check the printer to make sure it doesn't have any POP3 settings. POP is for receiving, not sending. You only want to configure the SMTP on the Printer so it will scan to email. I would suspect that won't require a password, but you'll have to check with whoever serves you mail for you.

Ok, so I diabled all pop settings on the printer (even though none were configured), but this seems to solve the problem of email printing off. However I still can't scan to email.

I got it figured out. They had the SMTP authentication type configured wron. It should have been set to basic authentication.

The information I provider to the asker in #33447035 helped them solve the stated issue of all emails printing on the printer instead of going to the users.
