Sorry I gave you a bad link,, here are the instructions

With proper printer driver settings, the address will be printed according to the direction of envelope.

Important

You need to print from the computer to print on envelopes.

Do not use the following envelopes:

- Envelopes with a double flap (or sticker flaps)

- Envelopes with an embossed or treated surface

- Envelopes with pressure seals

- Envelopes whose gummed flaps are already moistened and adhesive


Loading Envelopes in the Rear Tray

1 Prepare the envelopes.

Press down on all four corners and edges of the envelopes to flatten them.

If the envelopes are curled, hold the opposite corners and gently twist them in the opposite direction.

If the corner of the envelope flap is folded, flatten it.

If the leading edge of an envelope is puffed up or curled, use a pen to press the envelope flat and sharpen the crease.
Press the envelope flat, working from the middle to the edge.

* The above illustrations show a side view of the leading edge of the envelope.

Important

The envelopes may jam in the machine if they are not flat or the edges are not aligned.

Make sure that no curl or puff exceeds 0.1 inches / 3 mm.


2 Load the envelopes.

(B) Make sure the flaps are folded.

Note

Make sure that the Cover Guide is set upright when you load envelopes in the Rear Tray.
