I am trying, since I purchased the laser printer, to use the scan to email functionality, so far to no success and no lack of trying.
The printer does not support sending emails via authentication. HP requires that it sends out emails via unauthenticated SMTP. My email domain requires authenticated SMTP. I even agree with that, not that I have a choice in the matter.
Since I have a Windows Server attached to my local two computer network, I tried to install a local SMTP Server (Argosoft's MailServer.Net. I created a fake mail domain and set that no authentication is needed. I worked with the CEO of the company, as much as he allowed, and got to the point, where I got the mails from the laser printer bounced back.
The reason given was that I am trying to send mail from a domain that does not allow unauthenticated emails. Basically, my main IP address outside the firewall is a dynamically assigned IP address, not a static one, and one not assigned for a mail server.
Since I am not about to purchase a static mail server IP, just for the laser printer, is there anything that I can do that can resolve the issue?
I have no clue what HP thought, when they added this feature.
Does anyone have any thoughts?
My local workstation is Windows 8 Pro, but that does not make a difference, IMHO. The server is Windows Server 2012.
