Re: Oh no

[ As a complete noob on this kind of thing. Can a little server/laptop/solution be setup for email to print? Then just email the account, and it prints the document?

Yes, absolutely. A server can be set up to handle printing.

Most of the world is moving away from having on-site email servers.

And many if not most email-enabled printers can't handle the authentication now required for 'secure' email using gmail, so that's also not going to work for a lot of the users.
