Dell 2145cn MFP web-interface issue

Hello,

 

I am trying to activate the following check box in the web based configuration of the 2145cn multifunction printer:

Machine Settings > E-mail Setup > SMPT Client Setup > File Format Setup Prompt :  ( Always prompt for file format setup before scanning?)

 

I can check the box and click "Apply", but the printer always 'forgets' the setting.

I tested using Firefox 3.0.13 as well as Explorer 8.

I hate to bump my own posts, but could someone pass this to the firmware developers so they can correct it?

It's a real nuisance to always have to manually change the default file format when someone wants to scan a
JPEG instead of a PDF.

Interesting..... let's take this one step farther. I setup a 2145 on my office lab network and noted that when I accessed the page you provided, the check-box was already checked. BUT, once I unchecked the box, I found I could not get the box re-checked.

I'll pass this on up thru my company channels so they can pass it on to Dell to get fixed. Don't hold your breath...... these things take awhile.
