    My printer will not let me add any more email addresses and I have only about 10 in there but it states it is full. Is there a way to add more addresses that I have not found

    • From HP:

      Set the Outgoing Email Profiles

      Configure the email address which will appear in the FROM portion of the email message sent by the printer. You can add up to 10 Outgoing Email Profiles. You can use the HP software installed on your computer to create these profiles.

      Add email addresses to the Email Address Book

      Manage the list of people to whom you can send email messages from the printer. You can add up to 15 email addresses with their corresponding contact names. You can also create email groups. To add email addresses, you must use the printer’s embedded web server (EWS).

      Hope this helps.
