Outlook printing email chain on separate pages

Hello!  I think a setting changed somewhere but don't know where to look.

A client is printing an email chain, and each of the emails within the chain (now in one email) are printing on separate pages instead of filling up the page and then continuing.  
  So if a response of  OK is somewhere in the middle of the email chain was sent by Joe, that header and his response is on a separate page in the printout.  
 Client is printing to an HP 8040 series and this wasn't an a while ago, though he's said it has changed recently.

How do I get outlook to fill the page before printing on the next page in an email chain rather than printing them individually?

Which flavour of Outlook are we talking about: Outlook, Outlook.com or Outlook Express? In the case of Outlook, which year (2010, 2013, etc)?

Thank M$ for creating a mess like this.

Its outlook 2013 and exchange 2010 on the back end.   As I mentioned, this wasn't an issue until only a few weeks ago.

 TIA

I don't have Outlook installed, and Google does not show anything very relevant. And of course, because of the mess that the Outlook name is, it's very hard to get Outlook results separated from Outlook.com. Which clown thought it would be a good idea to use the same name for 2 different things?

Does it make a difference if you turn Conversation View on/off (under the View tab)?

I also found an Outlook add-in ( see http://www.printfortrial.com/ ) that produces the separate-page behaviour. Make sure your IT people did not install something like that.

Client claims adjusting the margins did the trick. Unsure I agree, but he said they resolved it.  Problem solved??

That's odd, but if the customer is happy, who are we to  complain?
