Are you able t print any other file? Like if you create a file in Microsoft word and try to print it will it get through?

Can you please save first the documents then try to print?

Shall i assume that this ever worked for your? Printing without save?

My 2nd question was if you locally create a file in the MS word then print. Will it print?

i guess in xp with windows live it asks you to open in order to print , BUT it does not open, it looks like the only option in windows live, THE PROBLEM, is to save then open then print..what a fiasco !!
and yes it prints fine in word/excel...which tells me that it is a windows live prob. as i suspected in the begining...having said that, i think that there are plenty issues with windows live, so prob. just have to live with it or use a diff. email editor...also what was your thoughts on being able to "view" explorer in details and have it STAY that way...?
