My elderly mom has memory problems and can't check her email by herself, or at least she couldn't until we got her the HP Printing Mailbox. Now ALL she has to do is retrieve the printed email. It really couldn't be easier. Our family and friends send Mom pictures, interesting articles, puzzles, and family emails. Presto provides an additional selection of newsletters. Attach a gif, jpg, or bmp to your email and it will print it out. Add a command to the subject line and your picture will be inserted in a calendar or any of the other selections of holiday, special event, and other colorful formats.

Think of this Mailbox as a printer with a modem in it. The only cost to you is purchasing the HP Printing Mailbox, and paying the $[...] monthly fee for the Presto service (or $[...] for a year). After that your only expenses are plain white paper and an occasional inkjet cartridge.

[...] The website is well done and user-friendly. You choose the email address and set us a "white list" of email addresses that are allowed to send email to the Presto account. That eliminates spam and phishing emails. There isn't any way to reply to emails using the Printing Mailbox, but the Presto folks print out the senders phone number on the emails. You aren't charged for the Presto service until the Printing Mailbox calls in for the first time.

Setup of the actual mailbox was easy too. Instructions are clearly written. Plug in the phone line and power cord, install the inkjet cartridge, put some paper in, wait a few minutes and you start receiving emails.

The Presto website tells me if the printer runs out of paper, and it tells me how much ink it has left. The only thing I would change if I could is to have a paper tray that holds 500 sheets of paper instead of just 50.

Verified Purchase
Rosa, our Grandmother, is an 83 year old that does not even want to see a computer, much less touch one. The TV remote is pretty much her limit.

Since half of us live on the East Coast away from her, we purchased the HP Printing Mailbox for her. At first, there was suspicion that this was "one of them new fangled computer things" that she wanted no part of.

That feeling lasted about one day. She called us after her first batch of printed Email and told us how thrilled she was to get all that "Email." Every time we talk to her on the phone she tells us how much she appreciates her new "Email" link to the family. She even uses the term "Email" now in her conversations.

Things we like:

1. Low price for printer and service vs value provided

2. Very simple for Rosa to use. Just loads paper and occasional cartridge

3. Link to G'Kids who don't know how to write an old fashioned letter

4. Ability so share pictures with her

5. Daily automatic calls to pick up Email while Rosa sleeps

6. Pure Email, no spam. Only people I designate can send Emails to her

7. Gives Rosa something positive to look forward to when she awakens

8. Hearing over and over how much she loves her "Email Machine."

Things we don't like:

1. Frankly, I can't find anything. The HP Printing Mailbox has functioned flawlessly. Sure, the pictures are not photo paper quality, but, she has pictures to look at and at 83 that is good enough. It also keeps the supply cost very low.


With all the new found messages and pictures, Rosa needed a way to organize them rather than a pile of paper.

When considering this product, focus on who will be using it, how often and why. It is perfect for many grandparents. We gave one to a grandparent and one to an aunt. Both quickly became addicted!

In our case, our relatives:
1. Did not have space for a laptop or regular computer. Besides, space or not, they weren't interested in browsing the net. They just wanted to be "in the loop" and be connected to friends and family across the country.

2.Suddenly, they were receiving jokes, emails and photos. They were delighted. We could find something on the internet and send it to them, after a bit of editing and tinkering with it, if desired.

3, Due to memory issues (with our relatives, not the Presto), anything more complicated would have been trouble.

4. If MOST of your time is spent answering emails, why would you need anything more? If you like to share photos, this could do that as well.


1. There is a monthly charge - if you pay that long enough, you'll have spent enough to buy a computer (but it'll take awhile to reach that point).

2. This is no substitute for a computer. It is a good way to get information, photos and letters to people quickly. I think of it as a mini mailbox, instant delivery.

My grandparents and I were thrilled with the prospect of their receiving email messages and pictures without a computer. The thrill was short lived when the HP printer quit working, after transmitting one message. We had techs from the cable company and electronics store come take a look, and it was discovered that the HP Presto Printer will not work with common digital cable phone lines. When I called Presto they confirmed that the machine will not, in fact, work with a digital phone line. This REALLY should be stated in the product's description. Disappointing.
