Expert:  Josh replied 4 years ago.
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.

(A) Printing orientation

(B) Make sure the flaps are folded.

(1) Load the envelope against the Cover Guide (the right side of the Paper Support).

Load with the address side facing UP and the rear flaps DOWN on the left.

Up to 10 envelopes can be loaded at once.


Note

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


(2) Pinch the Paper Guide and slide it against the left side of the envelope.


Important

Do not slide the Paper Guide too hard. The envelopes may not be fed properly.


(3) Press the Feed Switch so that the Rear Tray lamp lights up.


Note

You can also select the paper source with the printer driver.

For details, refer to the PC Printing Guide on-screen manual.


3 Specify the settings in the printer driver.

(1) Select Envelope in Media Type.

(2) Select the size for envelopes.

In Windows, select DL Env. or Comm. Env. #10 in Page Size.

(3) Select Landscape in Orientation.


Important

Be sure to set the printer driver setting properly. If you do not, the address may be printed in the wrong direction.
