How to mail a print job

It is possible to print a file by sending it on mail to the UiS UniFLOW print system. The system understand the following file types, but notice that types in parentheses are difficult to get right, it is therefore recommended to save document of these types as PDF and mail the PDF file instead.


  1. To print, open a new mail To:
    1. print@uis.no - for black and white duplex.
    2. printcolor@uis.no - for color duplex.
    3. printsingle@uis.no - for black and white single sided.
    4. printcolorsingle@uis.no - for color single sided.
  2. If you are on the Unix-nettwork, put your Employee or student number in the Subject field
  3. Attach the file you want to print. The file name should not contain any white spaces or ! characters.
  4. Send the mail, please notice that it may take a couple of minutes before the print job is accessible on the printer.

How to configure print to UiS UniFLOW printers on a Mac

If you want to configure this yourself go ahead and do the steps below, or you could try IT's automatic setup script, its available on http://student.uis.no/it-hjelp/utskrift/utskrift-fra-baerbar-mac/

  1. Open a Terminal and type: cupsctl WebInterface=yes
  2. Open a browser and enter the following address:
  3. Choose Adding Printers and Classes
  4. Under Printers choose Add Printer (you will need your local computer user name and password)
  5. In the list of Other Network Printers, choose Windows printer via spools, press continue
  6. In the connection field enter the following address: smb://uni-rps01/PrintPS press continue
  7. For Name enter PrintPS, description UiS Printer, and location UiS Campus, press continue
  8. Then provide the PPD PostScript Printer Description file.
  9. After that you can modify the printer settings, or just use the defaults.

To test, open a document and print. The first time you will need to enter a user name and password. The user name is your ansatt or student number prefixed with "UIS\", like this "UIS\1234567". Check the option to save your user name and password so you don't have to enter this information every time you print.


If you are having problem authenticating with your user name and password, download and run this script. (From http://student.uis.no/it-hjelp/utskrift/utskrift-fra-baerbar-mac/)
