Printing Issue With Outlook 2003

Running XP Home SP2 and Outlook 2003.  When you're  in the inbox and have an email highlighted, if you click on File…the Print option is grayed out where you can’t select it.  If you right click on the message, the drop down menu also has the Print option grayed out.

However, if you actually open up the message…then click on File…Print is available and you can print.

Before  today, I was able to print a message by simply selecting it in the Inbox, click on File, then click on Print…without actually having to open the message.

I haven't installed any new software or made any other changes in any settings...that I'm aware of.

Anyone have any ideas why Outlook would start behaving this way…and what I can do to fix it?

Well you could do a Detect & Repair from the MS Outlook > Help menu and see if it helps. Also confirm that the default printer is correct and available.

restart your computer and attempt again.

I should have included in my original query that I did perform a re-boot and also verified that the default printer was correct and available.
How about the detect & Repair?
