Epson has a range of what it calls “Epson Connect” solutions available across its range of printers, but not all printer models support all the options available. There are four Epson Connect solutions: Epson Email Print, Epson Remote Print, Epson Scan To Cloud and Epson iPrint.
In this article we shall look at Epson Email Print.
So What Is Epson Email Print?
Basically if your smartphone/tablet/PC/laptop can send email and has access to the internet, it can use Epson Email Print. You’ll instantly be able to email your Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, JPG and TIF files to a printer anywhere in the world. (The printer need to be compatible with the service and have access to the internet to receive the files.)
