Outlook 2003 printing html cuts off right side

When I attempt to print an HTML email, part of the ride side gets cut off when printing. I checked the margins in the Outlook and IE page setup are the same. I made the margins 0.75, 0.50, and 0.25 but all the same results.  If I click the forward message button and print from that view, the printing adjusts and right side prints without cut off.  I notice in the forward the html email expand the entire screen view while in the Inbox the mail message looks set in table size.

I am using Outlook 2003 and IE 8.

Any other options to look at?

After further changs, the final solution was to downgrade back from Internet Explorer 8 to Intrenet explorer 7. Outlook apparently uses the print engine of IE to print and there is a issue with Outlook 2003 and IE8 printing certain HTML messages. I did notice the issue only cuts off on the first page but not the second.  The issue also cuts off when changing to landscape.

Based on a Microsoft KB article, there is a hotfix for this issue, but this is only for newer OS. XP is no longer supported.

Check out EE issue ID: 24609661.  DLL hack as an alternative work-around.

We found a throw-away laptop w/ Vista Home Premium (since the fix can only be installed on Vista or 2008), installed the 980333 hotfix (make sure you pick the proper version for your workstation), and grabbed the 2 dlls.  ieframe.dll and ieui.dll.  We then transplanted the DLLs to the XP Workstations which require them.  Renamed the original DLLs, then copy the 2 new DLLs to C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\.

We don't know how these 2 DLLs would affect IE in other functions, but it did fix the print problem.

FYI, the hotfix actually corrupted the VIsta workstation, so we had to perform a system restore, but after we grabbed the DLLs.
