Try going to View, Current View, Customize current view, Fields and remove the header information.

Ok I tried that. All that did was change the way the Current View displays.
I did try to print an email after I made the changes you requested and the (From, Sent, To and Subject) headers are still there.  Just like the above photo in my first post.

I may have not been clear on my question here.  When I open an email in outlook 2007 then print the email it prints the (From, Sent, To and Subject) headers. Just like the example above.

I have read that article a wile back. I see that Applies to: Microsoft Office Outlook 2003. I am working with Microsoft Office Outlook 2007.

 I have been looking into this for a while now and have exhausted the Google search on this. So I was hoping that paying for the experts-exchange service that I may find a solution for this issue.

Although there is ways to print a email without the (From, Sent, To and Subject) headers. One Example is saving the email to a different format then editing it and removing the header then print it. This takes too long to do when we want to print an email without it’s the (From, Sent, To and Subject) headers.

I was sure that there was an easier way to print emails in Office Outlook 2007 without the (From, Sent, To and Subject) headers.

Well if there is not a setting in (Office Outlook 2007) to turn the (From, Sent, To and Subject) headers off when printing the email.  It seems like to me that it could be done with (Email Rules)

Example:  Adding a new Rule in the Rules Wizard (add new rule)
Step 1: Set the conditions.
This will set what email the rule applies to.
Step2: Set what we want to do with the email.
There is too options in there that should work.
One is (run a script) looks like we could write a script the will remove the headers and print the email.
The other one is (start application) look like we could build a batch file to remove the headers and print the email.

Well the fastest way I found to do this is,

 1.Open the email you want to print with no (From, Sent, To and Subject) headers.
 2.Look for (Other Actions) in the top ribbon
 3.Click on (view in browser)
 4.Click on Print
