The Print2Email is shareable over the network. To share the Print2Email Printer on the network, follow the instructions below to set up the printer sharing correctly.

Host: the host is where the base printer driver is installed.
Client: The client is where the printer driver is shared out too.

Sharing the Print2Email over the Network

  1. Before the Print2Email printer is shared from the Host, preconfigure the Printer Driver settings, navigate to Control Panel > Printers and Devices > right click on the Print2Email > Printer Properties > Advanced > Printing Defaults and configure the printer driver. Changing the printer driver setting through the Printing Preferences will have no effect on the shared printer on the client. The shared printer on the Client can be custom configured through Printing Defaults or Printing Preferences.

  2. Before the Print2Email printer is shared from the Host, the Print2Email settings also have to be configured. Print2Email does not display email sending window, when a user is trying to print from a client computer. The Print2Email only supports the silent email sending on shared Print2Email printers. The silent email sending options have to be configured on the host computer, where the Print2Email is installed.

    Navigate to the Email Settings, and on the General tab please select the “Send all emails automatically to the same address” option and setup the email addresses at the To field.

  3. On the Email Providers tab, one has to configure the default email provider, and disable the Ask for the provider every time when sending an email option.

  4. To Share a Print2Email Driver, go to Control Panel > Printers and Devices and right click on the printer you would like to share, and click on Printer properties.

  5. On the Sharing tab, check the Share this printer checkbox, and enter a Share name. The printer will be displayed with this name on the network.

  6. When finished, click on the Apply button. The Printer Driver is shared successfully.

  7. To add the shared printer on the client computer, go to Control Panel > Devices and Printers and click on the Add a printer option.

  8. Follow the instructions of the Add Printer wizard, and add the network printer.

  9. If the printer driver is added successfully, the following window appears.
