Once this has changed, this will have two effects for students:
1. Students should now use the Email-to-Print service from their Outlook account, as this is the email address that will be recognised by the print system.
2. When you use the scanning function on the MFDs (aka the All-In-One Konica printer/copier/scanners), the “Email Me” button you are given as an option to avoid having to type in your email address manually will now send the scans directly to your Outlook account.
