I've seen printers advertised as scanning to email and network folders,
and it turns out you need to control it FROM THE COMPUTER. (I saw the
adverts, downloaded the manual, and there was no mention of doing from

My Dell, you need the computer to configure it, but then everything is
controlled from the printer front panel.
