Sending an email directly to a printer

Question

With a crooked smile

I've spent a bit of time this evening automating a manual task, parsing info from an email and populating a template in Google Docs  with the relevant info. 

I'd like to send the Google doc directly to a printer without any manual intervention any idea how I could accomplished this?

I can send automatically send an email when the new doc is created but I'm not sure if there is a way to get that email direct to a network printer?

Depends on the options built into your printer - otherwise you will need software to process the email and send it to the appropriate ip address and port of the printer.

 

What printer do you have (a lot of HP and Epson printers have it built in)?

Thanks Eek, we have a brother printer. It doesn't have the email functionality that HP printers can have, but I've found out some email clients like outlook and thunder Bird can sent an email based on rules to the local machines printer service so I'm going to investigate using that as part of the solution.
