How to Use Print from E-mail

Print from E-mail allows you to print attachment files easily. You only attach a picture or a document from your computer or smartphone and send the e-mail with the attached file.

You can print simply from outside like a travel destination. Also, your family or friends can print by registering beforehand.

You can use Print from E-mail on any Canon printer that supports the service.

Checking Your Environment

First, check your environment.

  • Network environment

    This product needs to be connected to a LAN with an Internet connection.

Important

  • The user will bear the cost of Internet access.
  • This function may not be available in some countries/regions.
  • This function is not available depending on the printer you are using. To confirm whether this function is available with your printer, refer to List of Function for Each Model (Print from E-mail).
