Known issues

 I changed my document from colour to B&W but it doesn't print out?

Known issue: If you change your print document at the printer from colour to B&W, the estimated cost of the print job does not change on the screen. even you may have enough iPrint credit to print the job in B&W, iPrint sees that you have less credit than the estimated (colour) cost.

Therefore, the system will not allow the job to be printed. You will need to put more credit into your iPrint account to be able to print.

The actual cost of the job is correct when the print job is released.

 Gmail visitor account not working?

Known issue: Gmail removes periods from email addresses when processing them. For example, the email koby.tilley@gmail.com actually renders as kobytilley@gmail.com

This is not an iPrint problem - it's a Gmail "feature".
