When I print an email (html document) the attachments info (.doc, pdf, etc) shown in the email don't print out

When I go to print out an email in Microsoft Outlook. I click on the email and open it up. This particular email has attachments and I can see them in the email right under the "subject:  " line. When I go to File I go down the Print area and I can see Page Setup, Print Preview (grayed out) and Print. Then when I print the document it doesn't print out the attachment information. I've noticed that this doesn't always happen. Some emails sent to me do print out the attachment information; when I go to print out the email in these documents the Print Preview isn't grayed out. Is there a way to turn this feature so I can always print out the attachment info. Or is this dependent on the sender email software? Is there some code I can run or program I can install that will turn this feature on?

Thanks gabeme2002

    outlook doesnt allow preview of HTML emails. if you have the reading pane on the left or bottom to view the email, and go to file and print, it have an option on the bottom to print the attachment also (but not all kind of attachment). having the email in another window and going to print doesn't give you the option of printing the attachment.
