When I click on the printer buttons to scan an item to the computer by, pdf, jpeg or Scan To email, OR, click on the desktop icon, Epson Scan, and try to use, Scan To Email, I now always get error message, "Communication Error. Check to see if computer is connected". The computer must be connected to the printer (set up wireless) as I can print any item from a website on my screen, or from a document on my laptop. Up until about a year ago I was always using the, Scan To Email, feature with no trouble using Win10 and email client, Thunderbird. I now use GMail as email client. A thought: Since I still have the original set-up disc that came with my XP830 printer is it possible to ONLY delete the Scan Utility feature now on my system and then inserting & using the disc to reinstall ONLY the Scan Utility feature? As a novice I would think that such a reinstall would include the, Scan To Email, feature. IF, "yes such reinstall is possible", would someone please give me very detailed instructions to accomplish this reinstall so that I don't goof. IF such a reinstall is not possible or not a good idea, then I would greatly appreciate any and all suggestions on how to retrieve, Scan to Email. Thanks. Old submariner, John

Check to see if the scan program is allow to go outbound on the firewall. If that doesn't work try allowing inbound communications to it, but that's a security risk.
