HP Officejet Pro 8600 Fax (CM749a) Email problem n911a


I use a HP Officejet 8600 aio n911a (CM749a) connected to a network via ethernet.

My fax machine is currently set to 'Fax to Network Folder', but I would like to change this to 'Fax to Email. I went to the Fax tab and clicked on the HP digital Fax Wizard to try to change the 'Fax to Network Folder' to 'Fax to Email' but I cannot find anywhere how to do this.

It only allows me to disable the HP digital fax or fax to network folder.

I don't know if this helps, but I have configured alerts to e-mail through EWS/settings/Email Alerts, which seems to work fine. If the printer can send emails.

I would be grateful for your help.

Kind regards


Hi Osman,

The HP Officejet Pro 8600 (N911a) support only the digital repository (Scan or E-mail) to a network folder.

Only the Officejet Pro 8600 Plus / Premium models provide the specific functionality.

You can find this information in the product specifications:

  • HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus - ADF scanning problem


    I recently bought this printer and used without problem for almost 2 months. However, right now I am struggling with the ADF.

    When I put a document to scan by ADF, I have a thin, black line on re-impressions. It is on the right side of the page, starts from everything at the top and goes down all the way.

    I have even if it is a kind of alignment line (you know when we write try, or its composition, leave us space on both sides)

    This problem does not exist when I scan and print documents of old school way, aka analysis usual. Only the ADF documents'ed have this problem a little. (The thin black line on things reprinted)

    Any recommendations?

    Best regards

    Hey there @operationorphan

    I just wanted to add my own suggestions here for the issue of two-sided printing that you had with your Officejet 8600.

    You can try to update the firmware: get the latest Firmware and updates

    If this does not help, try to uninstall the printer software , reboot the PC and reinstall the printer. This should dissipate all software problems.

    I hope that helps!

    If troubleshooting doesn't help not solve your problem, then I would say call the HP Technical Support to see all the other possibilities for you. If you call in North America, the number is 1-800-474-6836 and for all other regions: click here.

    See you soon

  • More HP Officejet Pro 8600 - Fax answering incoming calls instead of answering machine

    I set up the fax on my new HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus & the fax at the end past all test report & yes I used the good cable for the phone (the one that came with the fax) However when someone calls, the fax picks up the call rather than the answering machine.

    Can someone tell me how to fix this please?

    If you get only fax from time to time, I suggest to turn off the auto answer on the 8600, and when you hear the fax tone, * #123 to tell the fax machine to pick up. In this way, you can leave your answering machine like that and do not miss faxes.

  • Connected HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus status reads "problem with printer."

    I could just ePrint on an OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus replacement and them have not used for printing yet. I was in the devices page to manage the settings and change an address for one of my devices. The newly added column 8600 State reads 'Online', but also 'problem with printer '. Instructions I was referring to the display panel of the unit for Outlook2003 on the given problem. A check of the display surface showed no information, just a typical home screen. I checked through the display print and found no problems-all functionality is enabled and fully functioning. I checked then the functions of printer in the window 'Printers and devices' of all computers (all running Windows 7 Professional) on the office network. The 8600 are active and full functionality works correctly between the printer and all the computers.

    I then close the printer 8600, left for several minutes, and then lit it back and reconnected. The State says 'Problem with printer' remains in the device window HP.

    I am at a loss as to what this supposed problem can be and don't know what should be a next step. Does anyone have any advice or information that could help in this situation? It would be appreciated. Thanks in advance to those who could help

    HP support responded to my question by e-mail. I was told that the message 'Problem with the printer' is due to a bug in their system. Also said that as long as the status column indicates the printer is "Online" and everything else is fnctioning correctly, don't worry about this.

    I consider that a resolution of the post!

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600 - FAX with ATT Ringmaster Service number

    I have a phone line with two numbers, the number of the House and with a distinctive ring fax number.  Send/receive works fine and the machine goes to sleep as you wish.

    When the house number rings, the machine out of sleep.  Is this supposed to be like this?  Whenever the phone rings of House, the machine out of sleep.

    After 5 minutes it falls asleep, as it is supposed to.  I find it odd that she would detect a ring on the home phone number.

    Thank you.

    PS - HP Support had me change the fax settings even though I don't think they understood what I was explaining to them.  After that I hung on to the top of the support, the machine responded as well the house number and the fax number.  I went back to the settings that I had done, but the machine still pop sleep whenever the House telephone number sounds.

    Also, when I turn off the PC, the display on the printer stay on all night.

    Someone at - it help with this (these) issues?

    Hi LeeSoFL,

    Welcome to the HP Forums, I hope you enjoy your experience! To help you get the most out of the Forums of HP, I would like to draw your attention to the Guide of the Forums HP first time here? Learn how to publish and more.

    From what I understand, when you receive an incoming call, the 8600 fate of "sleep" mode and no matter if it's just a voice call or a fax. This is perfectly normal. As long as the 8600 is not attempt to return to the call voice then everything works without any problem. For the display remaining throughout the night, you may notice that it darkens. If you are worried about remaining on, try plugging the power cable directly to a wall outlet, if it isn't already. HP printers have built in surge protector and if you have connected it to a strip bar, the printer will not get all the power it needs to function properly and cela might be the reason why the screen stays on all night after the computer is turned off. Here is a document that explains the problems when connected to an uninterruptible power supply/Strip/surge protector power.

    Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

    Thanks for your time.

    I understand that your emails are printing landscape. If the problem is that when printing of emails, there may be a setting in your e-mail settings to change the print settings.

    If all your programs print in landscape, check the print on your computer settings.

  • HP Officejet Pro 8600 more than network problem

    Hi I had this printer for a long time and I recently started to use functions such as printing on my network instead of print wireless wired after having several computers in the House and the feature works very well, but every time I restart the printer (I turn off every day to save energy), the connection does not work , and the display shows something like "not applicable". If I manually connect the printer to the network, then it works. But I want the connection to be consistent, not where I have to manually reconnect to the printer to my router everytime I turn on the printer. All solutions? Online tools that provides HP really doesn't help.

    Hello @thehairdude , welcome to the forums there.

    I saw your post on your Officejet 8600 more disconnect from your network and I am writing to share my suggestion.

    See this link, which will help you to assign a static IP address, which normally stabilize the connection and prevents your printer down the network.

    Printer keeps no connection Wi - Fi
