Printing from Email - MF743CDW

I'm about 98% there and just need a tip. 
I have setup SMTP/POP and all related port settings, etc (google app password, google's unique port numbers, etc) so that when I send an email to a gmail account, it connects and wants to pull it. 

I have it setup on a 2 min window to check for the email. SMTP & POP tests pass successfully. 

I have a test email there with a PDF. 

Now, every 2 minutes the printer wakes up and tries to connect, but then it pops an error to the RX log on the printer:

Error
Type: i-Fax
Timestamp

... and no actual real troubleshooting data involved to help me figure out what failed. 
Should this show as an i-fax job even though its an email or is that erroneous?

Note: In an older Canon guide I saw that they use to only support image types like JPG and TIFF so I sent in an email with a TIFF attachment. No change, still connects but never prints.

For clarity, you want to send an email to the printer and have it print?

If so, yes, that's called an iFax.

It might only support .PDFs and word docs.  I don't honestly know because  I've never tried on a Canon device.  I'll see if I can find some documentation on it.  You can also contact Canon and speak with a support representative.
