Hi,

While printing MS Outlook mails using visual basic code, it prints with date footers for HTML mails. We cleared  the headers and footers of outlook and IE print page setup. But also it  shows the same problem. So please suggest a solution for this.

Thanks in advance.

Hi cmatian,

Have you checked your VBA code that nothing is there with respect to printing footers ?

Since you have cleared the options in outlook and also in IE pagesetup ( not sure how far this can help) , it should not really print the footers .

Can you do this test ?
Can you print the email from outlook directly going to file --> print to see if it would print that way also. Make sure to check the Memo Style and Table style printing options. If it doesnot print the footer, then definitely you should check the VBA code. If it prints, then we have to look at something more in depth

Thanks for your comments.

This date printing problem is only with the html mails. We removed the headers and footers from memo and table style printing options and set the font color as white. Then also it showing the same problem.

For HTML formatted emails , Outlook depends on Internet explorer
Open IE
go to file --> Page setup and remove all the options given for header and footer
Close IE
open Outlook and check now

I got a reply from MS Support saying its an outlook bug. We can't remove the default date footer for HTML mails.
