This document applies to HP printer models that include the HP ePrint via email feature and that have been successfully registered at HP Connected. When trying to email a print job to the printer, the print job fails, or a 'Mail System Error Returned Mail' error message is received. Review the solutions in this document for possible issues with the printer, ePrint, email or attachment, or the mobile device.
IMPORTANT: ePrint jobs can take a few minutes to print. If there is an issue with the HP printer such as no paper or if the printer is offline, the print job will stay on the ePrint server for 24 hours. The server will check the HP printer's status regularly. After 24 hours, the server will delete the print job.

note:Some of the following solutions include steps to physically interact with the HP printer. If you are away from the HP printer, you need to enlist the help of someone who has access to the HP printer.
