Margins in Microsoft Outlook

I have a question concerning Microsoft Outlook 2002.

When I attempt to print a Rich Text e-mail [in Memo Style] the margins are just fine. However when I carry out the same action in printing HTML e-mails [once more in Memo Style] for some odd reason I get the left margin almost at the edge of page.

Moreover, when I attempt to change the margins from File-->Page Setup, I unfortunatelly cannot fix it for HTML e-mail.

Any ideas anyone?

Hi BarretK,

HTML email properties are taken from Internet explorer and assuming that is the default browser you have got.
Open IE
go to file --> page setup and check the margins there
Change the margins , make 0.75 on all 4 sides
press OK

Close and open outlook again and see how the print comes

Is printing from internet explorer fine ?

In outlook have you tried to change the values going to
file ---> page setup ---> memo style ----> paper and then margin settings there ..

Does the print issue come even when you print in landscape mode ?

Well,

I just figured it out. You were right about the fact that I needed to change it from IE. What I just noticed was that the unites were in mm. (milimeters) rather than cm. (centimetres) which made the whole issue a bit complicated.

Now that I changed the margins in IE all is working well.

Cheers
