Outlook provides very weak tools for customising printed reports. You can change header, page number ... But users often require much more. For example, they wanted to see user-defined fields in Memo style. The desision we are using now is to connect Access tables to Outlook and then create reports in Access. But, maybe, somebody knows a better solution ? - may be an external tool, COM add-in , etc.

The best solution, IMO, is to use Word or Excel as the print engine, creating a custom template and pushing the data from Outlook into the template. See http://www.slipstick.com/dev/customprint.htm for more info.
