In the technical data sheet at Kyocera


I found in particular (excerpt)
"SCAN FUNCTIONS ... Functionality: Scan-to-e-mail"
(and many more).

Accordingly I think what I worote about
"powerful network printer scanner copier all-in-one device"
in "Scanning via Network" at
matches perfectly here.

Only FYI a side note regarding printing:

The above mentioned technical data sheet at Kyocera also reads
"PRINT FUNCTIONS ... Emulations: ... KPDL 3 (PostScript 3 compatible),
  PDF Direct Print 1.7"

See "PostScript+PDF printers" at

As far as I know what is currently missing for direct PDF printing
are PPD files that support PDF printing directly, see

I don't know if Kyocera perhaps already provides a PPD file for
their ECOSYS M6526cdn model that supports direct PDF printing.

Cf. HP devices that support direct PDF printing:
