    Try and find out if the copier can be set up to use DNS.
    Am pretty sure it is setup on DNS as it uses DNS to resolve computer names when doing scan to folder and scan to email ( resolving hostname of smtp / email server to its ip address ) and visa versa but as soon as I do an nslookup on either the hostname or ip address of any of the copiers we have it won't do it for the copiers.

    However the strange thing is - when using the hostname of any of the copiers for a standard tcp/ip port for printing it resolves fine as it obviously finds out the correct ip address / details etc so not sure if its a restriction or what exactly bit of an odd one.

    At the command prompt, type NSLOOKUP

    This will enter NSLOOKUP's interactive mode.

    Type
    SET DEBUG

    Now type the device you want to look-up. e.g.
    copier1

    You'll see a lots of lines, the important one is the QUESTIONS: line. This is what's being queried in your DNS system. With luck it should be obvious what's going wrong. My money is on a problem with the DNS suffix.
    thats how i normally do an nslookup in command prompt but will give that a go tommorow
