No, this is NOT an issue, neither a bug. You can't print a mail untill you have saved it. You can print it, if you have either saved it or sent it or recd it. If you have saved a mail, you can print it by switchihng to Drafts folder and select the mail and print.

(1) Save the email
(2) Go to Drafts (it should be the last mail)
(3) Make sure it is selected and click FILE > PRINT

Hi,

Print option still not available after I saved the mail, go to Drafts,
click File > Print
I can only print after mail has sent out.
Is there any other way to work around this issue?
Will reinstall Outlook help? How should I do it?
I understand that I need to backup some files before the reinstallation,
especially when there are contacts & personal folders.
Please advise. Thank you.

One clarification, you donot have to print it from the mail message window. Close the message window after saving it. Now go to the drafts folder and select the message. Not click FILE menu and you will find the "Print" option is available.
