    Sounds like you downloaded the wrong driver.

    On their Windows driver page (assuming you're using Windows) there are several options.

    If you're using WinXP, the only WinXP applicable file listed is actually a Monitor utility, but it does not state that it includes the driver (never safe to assume anything).

    But if you are using WinXP, it already has many printer drivers included.

    Try this:
    1. Right-click My Computer
    2. Select Manage option
    3. Select Device Manager
    4. In right pane, expand [+] Printers
    5. Select your new printer
    6. Uninstall the printer
    7. Reboot your system and see if WinXP automatically loads the driver
    This means WinXP already had the correct driver.

    If this does not work... Is your printer "new" to you (used from someone else)?

    If it is actually store-bought new, it should still be under warranty. Go through the store or Epson and get the CD you are missing.

    Do other documents print, like a simple Notepad doc?

    If it does, your email print problem is with your email client, not the printer.
