Outlook print problem

Posted on 2009-02-20

I installed this version of Outlook a few days ago.
When I go to the print menu, I am only getting the Memo Style print, where you can only choose if you want to print the whole document, the odd pages or the even pages - i.e I cant choose to print the first page of emails when I only need to do that.

How can I go around that issue and have the normal  Microsoft Word  print menu? I hope its a simple thing, because my emails are about 13 pages long and its ridiculous to waste so much paper& Please help!

    I have found only one worarounds for this problem:
    1. Open the message -> Other Actions -> View in Browser.
    2. Print from brouser with usual print options.

    But it's not work with plain text email's. :(
    For that we need:
    1. Open the message -> Other Actions -> Change message
    2. Choose Options tab and select HTML.
    3. Save
    4. Open the message -> Other Actions -> View in Browser.
    5. Print from brouser with usual print options.

    There is also a tool for normal printing:
    But it's too expensive for such small function.

    Try this:
    1. Tools > Options > Mail Format > Check Use Microsoft Office Word to read Rich Tex e-mail messages
    2. Restart Outlook
    3. Open up an e-mail and go into File > Print
    4. Now you'll see a better print menu

    Madjax, i'm not sure.... but it seems to me question was about Outlook 2007. There is no such options like in Outlook 2003 :(.
