How to print the envelope on a different printer from the letter?
Hello, I have someone in the office looking to use Microsoft Word 2003 to print envelopes (in the Tools--> Letters and Mailings --> Envelopes and Labels). The trick is, they want the letter to print on one printer, and the envelope to print on another. How do you change where the envelope prints? Can this even be done? Any help would be appreciated.

Sure. Select the Office Logo (the big circle on the top left) and then choose: "Print>" You will be able to select the printer, and then choose: "Current page." Move to the next page, and repeat the process, choosing the preferred printer.

Yes you can print an address on an envelope. Do you have Microsoft Office? If so, click on new office document and click the tab that says Letters & faxes (for versions before 2007) and choose the label wizard. When the window opens, click the tab that says envelope instead of label and follow the prompts to type in the information you want to print on yoru envelope.
If you have Office 2007 - or newer, click on new office document and then choose blank document. Click on the tab at the top that says mailings and then choose envelope and type in the information you want to print on your envelope. Then click on file, and print. You will need to load your envelopes in the printers tray and put them in the correct direction according to the settings your machine requires. You might need to waste a few envleopes until you get it right.
You will have to use software to make the labels...like Microsoft Office Word, Open office Writer, or Microsoft Works. In MS Office Word (2003) go to tools->letters and mailings -> envelope and lables. Create the label you need.
If you use open office, go to File->New->Labels and create the label you need.
After which, you put the paper in the printer and print them out. May want to check out the size so you make sure it prints correctly.
This has to be done through an application like Microsoft Word. For instance on Office 2007 you would select the Mailings tab then click on Envelopes to specify the address etc. In previous versions you would have had to click on the Tools menu then Letters and Mailings then Envelopes and Labels. Once you've got all the information you want printed on the envelope Place the envelope in the printer in the exact configuration shown on the printer. Should have a feed on the side, look for the envelope symbol. Print and you'll be good to go. (:
If you are printing an envelope for a letter, In Microsoft Word 2003, click on Tools, Letters and Mailings, Envelopes and Mailings, and go from there. If it does not select the address, highlight it first. If you want to print an envelope that is not corresponding to a letter, type it in Microsoft Word and carry on with the same procedure. You will have to test an envelope to see which orientation works so that the front, back and flap are inserted properly. Usually the default is a #10 envelope. There is usually a movable plastic guide to fit an envelope in. Although I have not worked with this particular printer, the procedure is universal.
When you print an envelope, let the printer print on a regular sheet of paper to see if it's printing in an area not in line with the envelope.
This example is from Open Office. Microsoft is pretty much the same. What this is showing is the position of the envelop feeder so you know which one to select so that it can print correctly. The software must be set up correctly. The arrows show the path of the paper feed.
To find this in Office, click on TOOLS, LETTERS AND MAILINGS, ENVELOPES AND LABELS.
Click on the envelope in the FEED box.
This window will show the feed position of the envelope using an 8x11 as a point of reference.
I've found a similar problem to be an issue with a character that is misread by the PCL6 driver. I would uninstall the PCL6 driver (including from the printer server properties) and install the PCL5e driver in its place.
