Scanning to Email with Exchange 2013

Can someone provide some direction on how i can get my multifunction printer to scan to email.  This has always worked fine when we had Exchange 2007 and we recently set up Exchange 2012.
Mail is working fine on the server, no problems at all but when someone tries to scan a document from the printer to an email (either theirs internally or external) it fails saying smtp authentication error.
How can i make my Exchange 2013 server accept mail from my printer on 192.168.0.25 IP?
Ive looked online and i see these 15 page articles etc.. etc...  very frustrating, the copy machine/printer/scanner needs to be able to send email outbound using our exchange server.  Im not very good at command line so any instructions using the GUI would be great.
This is a single 2012 server with Exchange 2013, about 15 users.

Thanks

You would need to give the SMTP access to your printer, so that your printer will generate the mails and a route through exchange server

How to give SMTP access to Exchange server.

You can add the IP address of printer to Exchange server Receive connector, better you can create the new receive connector, so that you can fix the issue in future. Thanks.

If you are accepting email from the internet directly, rather than via another third party service, then to email internal users, there should be nothing more to do - just point the scanner at the Exchange server's internal address.
If you want to send to external recipients, then that is a different matter, and would require an additional connector to allow relaying.
If you are restricting who can send email to your server on port 25, then you will either need to add the address to the list, or setup a dedicated connector.
