Hello all,

I have an HTML email that I send to some customers when an order is completed.  The email contains a table with some data in it.  The email looks perfect when viewed on screen, but when I print it out, none of the table cells are colored as I have them on the screen.  They all have white backgrounds when printed.

I've tried to Print my message in Yahoo and GMail, and the problems occurs in both.

Help.

Table backgrounds (as page backgrounds and other types of backgrounds) are almost never printed unless you explicitly state so while starting your print job. This therefor is a per-client problem rather than something you can fix using css I think.

Since you're talking about GMail and Yahoo this will be a setting in your browser.  It's different in each browser, but there should be a checkbox for "Print background colors" you can turn on if you do want backgrounds to print.

an image of the table as a workaround if you must have the background printed?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Under "Page Setup", the first tab (Format & Options) has the "Print Background (colors & images)" checkbox.

That being on Windows.  On the Mac it's under the "Firefox" print options, which in itself is only one page.  On Linux... come to think of it I've never printed anything from Firefox on Linux.  I have no idea.  I'm gonna hope you're on Windows.  (-:
