Printing From Outlook

Jobs are being monitored, and logged as "Outbind:\\xxxxx-xxxxxxxxxx" instead on "Microsoft Outlook - Email header"
This is seen in the queue and when released.
Citrix client, Outlook 2007 (non-web based). Windows 7 or Wyse host both affected the same.

I can see lots of references to HP printers having problems printing these, but nothing which is the same for a Canon driver...

Not sure what your problem is, that is the default header behaviour from Outlook when printing, nothing to do with the driver.
The print header is produced by the application, not the driver, the queue only reports what the application (in this case outlook) tells it.

Normally I would expect "Microsoft Outlook - Memo Style" not Outbind:\\xxxxx.
Just wondered if anyone else had seen the outbind instead of the outlook start.

Wylie's comment is fair - the question wasn't maybe clear. but here has been no further input as the the reason for the difference. Given feedback I receive on deleted questions, this isn't a clearly defined answer therefore should be deleted.

I don't mind.
The "Outbind:\\xxxxx-xxxxxxxxxx" is however, as far as I know, the default job header from Outlook.
It may be because it is printed from the exchange server, and not directly.

oops, that should have read job name, not job header

I'd agree on web based access, i'm thinking it's a citrix based outlook app at fault. Be certain of this is harder to prove.

I regularly see that header on Outlook items printed from Exchange.
Never thought about it before, but this article seems to point the finger at HTML emails.
