SMTP to allow a printer to scan to email

Last Modified: 2014-09-05
We just replaced a network printer with a different printer.  The old printer's ip was setup in smtp and we were able to scan to email.  I am using the old printer's ip and after configuring it to be able to scan to email I get a general error that only states SMTP.  Will the Exchange Admin need to setup the new printer to be able to scan to email?  I thought using the old printer's ip would work.  Also, will I need to input the SMTP's credentials on the new printer to be able to access the SMTP server?  I do this once in a blue moon (Changing or setting up a new network printer) and cannot remember what I did before.  I am definitely documenting the steps this time.  Thanks for your help
