In addition to the other methods of sending a print job to a printing station as described in Wireless Printing, there is an option to email a document to a print station.

1. Sign into your email account. It does not have to be your BYU-Idaho email account.
2. Open a new email message.
3. For a job to be printed in black and white, enter "bw@byui.edu" as the address the email should be sent to.
4. For a job to be printed in color, enter "color@byui.edu" as the address the email should be sent to.
5. Add the document to be printed as an attachment. The attachment must be smaller than 52.4 MB. Supported file types include:
  • Microsoft Word
  • Excel
  • PowerPoint
  • PDF
  • Image
  • Text (CSV, RTF, & TXT)
  • Visio 
NOTE: if your file is not one of the supported formats, we recommend exporting it to a PDF type to attach to the email.
6. Send the email.

NOTE: The first time you use this service from an email account, you will receive a response asking you to register your email with your BYU-Idaho account if the message was successfully sent. Any email, and multiple emails, can be registered to your BYU-Idaho account for mobile printing. There is no need to resend the attachment after you have registered your email account.

  3. Select and print your print jobs.
