How to scan to email settings. Confirmed for C2665dnf. Home setup

I have the answer to this issue, I setup a google address to scan to any email address from home.

Here is the major issue. Google wants us to use their Google Apps. Our Dell Printer does not use a google app. So we have to get a password from Google to access their email system. They make us go through this step for all non-google app access.

 

Two steps in Google to allow the printer to access your account.

Go to your Google gmail account. You need to activate the 2-Step Verification turned on

https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox etc

 

Last Google STEP!

Go to App Passwords.

Setup a password for ALL applications you will use, like your printer. It will Generate a password for you. Copy it >This is an important step. You need this password to make it all work.

 

Step one, log into your printer via web browser.

Print Server Settings> then click the tab [Print Server Settings] >then [TCP/IP]

2nd box down you will see DNS. IPv4 un-check the Get DNS box enter this address 8.8.8.8

 

Click at the bottom Apply new Settings. You MUST always apply the setting before leaving the page or it doesn’t save the setting.

 

Step 2, go to the [E-Mail Server] tab

Primary SMTP Gateway: smtp.gmail.com

SMTP Port Number: 465

Email Send Auth: *SMTP AUTH (AUTO)

SMTP login: your gmail login email here

Password: your G-mail GENERATED password. This is where you paste that password that Google generated.

Password: repeat

POP and POP3 ignore it.

Reply Address: your gmail email address goes here again

 

Click at the bottom Apply new Settings. You MUST always apply the setting before leaving the page or it doesn’t save the setting.

 

Step 3

Click the [Security] tab above

Then the SMTP - SSL/TLS Communication: *SSL/TLS

               

Click at the bottom Apply new Settings. You MUST always apply the setting before leaving the page or it doesn’t save the setting.
