Printing Multiple Images as Attachments in Outlook 2007

I'm running into an issue with Outlook 2007 when a user attempts to print multiple attachments using the "print attached files" option. If these are images (I've tested with tif and jpegs) a blank piece of paper prints. This is consistent across 3 different printers. The images print fine if I print them individually. I have updated Outlook to version 12.0.6341.5000 and have all windows updates current as of 4/3/09.

I have also experimented with file associations and changed the default file associations for these file types to paint, windows picture and fax viewer and MS Office Picture manager to no avail.

Is there a way to get this to work without using 3rd party tools or addins?

Wish it were that easy - there are a lot of business processes in this company that involve receipt of multiple attachments to an email that are "printed" into a virtual printer that sends them into an imaging system. Not being able to do this is really slowing down some of the folks.

Any 3rd party products that would make it work?

Write a script that does this for the user. Put a button: Print all in the ribbon or above:
