As per the manual from trgrassijr55's post, tray 1 supports up to 220 gsm. That should cover most envelopes. Howevr, yours does not seem to be a standard size. This means you need to set it up as a custom size.

You need to tell both the printer and the driver what your size is, as well as the type of paper. You can select either envelope or heavy paper - but if you select envelope, the printer may revert back to standard envelope sizes. To tell the printer, type its IP address into your browser, and you should be able to do it there. Alternatively, do it from the printer's front panel.

To tell the driver, click on the printer in Devices & Printers, and then click on the Print Server Properties menu. Under Forms, scroll down to the custom size you selected on the printer (e.g. Custom1), select it and set its size. Click OK and go to Printer Properties. When you print you need to select both the Custom1 size, as well as the paper type you specified on the printer. In Word you need to do this from Page Setup or from the Envelope printing wizard, as Word lets you change paper settings from page to page, and hence disregards driver settings.
