  10. Click Grant Access.

  12. If you receive an Undeliverable email message, feel free to delete it. This is a normal part of this process.

  13. If you have not already done so, create a self-service helpdesk ticket to complete the configuration of the scan folder. Please:

NOTE:  Disregard the "Undeliverable to scanuser" email received.  You get this because scanuser is not an email account but an administrative account managed by IT.


If scan does not work after job ticket is completed:

Call help desk with any error messages at printer and reference previous help desk ticket number.

**Only Ricoh and Lanier scanners are supported. 

*Other printers models such as HP with scanner capabilities are not supported with scanning system
