Remote Printing – E-mail – Part 3 Printer POP3
(Unfortunately this is the second time I’m writing this as I trashed my database to correct an apostrophe problem before thinking about the post I’d just written…)
I’ve just switched hosts this week and was updating various settings in my network when I logged into the Kyocera Command Center and came across a page that I’ve probably seen before, but never understood what it could do. The Kyocera printer can listen to up to three POP3 addresses on a scheduled basis and print those emails out! Basically it does everything I’d written in Part 1 – for free and without me having to write/maintain/run it… So far though, I’ve only gotten it to print the attachments on emails – but that’s what I want it for.
Configuring Kyocera Printer POP3
Open Advanced -> POP3 -> User 1(, 2 or 3)
Edit the User page accordingly – ask your Host/ISP if you are unsure of any settings
When complete, click Test to make sure the settings are working. If they are you’ll see the following
Click “Back to the previous page” and Submit the page to save the settings.
Next, click on the General tab…
and fill in the page with appropriate values
Submit the changes to save them
To test everything is configured correctly and that the printer is listening, send an email containing a single page PDF to the address specified on the User page.
The PDF should be printed – might take a few minutes depending on the interval value you’ve specified.
