It appears that the file is being printed to FILE and not directed to print on your printer. Go to PRINTERS in the CONTROL PANEL and click on your printer and then right click on your printer and in the drop down list click on SET AS DEFAULT. It then should work properly. Bud

Have you check the control panel to verify that the printer is installed and if so do you have a wireless printer.

How do I print off E-Mails?


Right click on the body of the email and select Print.

Otherwise, if you don't want the whole page but just the body of the mail, you can do one of two things:

  • Highlight the body of the email, go to File, and select Print. OR
  • Highlight and copy the body of the email, paste into notepad, wordpad, or other word processing program, and print from there.

While printing an email most of the time the image does not show and therefore get a blank printout. What do I do?


That's probably a setting in your email client. In Thunderbird, e.g., you click File, Page Setup, and select "Print Background (Colors and images)" to get images to print. Outlook, Mail, etc., should have a similar setting.

Hey im trying to help my sister out with some documents, only it was originally 4 pages which ive manged to get down to 2 double sided documents (ie 2 pages back to front) and now i cant seem to be able to...


Open the saved document then click file print. Then when the print page comes up on your screen set the printer to print to as Microsoft Document Writer. Which is a virtual printer. Then click print, save the file on your computer either my Documents or on the Desktop. Click print.
It will then print your document to a file.

This file can then be attached to an e-mail.
Let me know how it goes!

Take care!

Cannot print full page from email. It starts half way down the page and does not get the full message


Instead of printing directly from within the email, you might try saving the email (either under "save" or "export" in the menu) as a PDF file and then printing from that file instead. Sometimes this fixes the issue.

If this was helpful, please remember to leave me positive feedback!

Printer will not print from email


if you wan to print an email . go to the actually web page ...and try from there ...do not try to print from outlook cause it has an encoding that might not be read by the printer ...specially for attachments ...
if you wan t to print an attach ment ..save it in the computer first ...
if you want the whole page ...print it from the website of the email service ...and use file(left -top) and print ...for yahoo for example you can print from the page directly by using the print job on the right corner of your email ...Im sure that for about any email service there is a thing like this ...
in sort ...usually is best to save any file that ya want to print into the computer before..

Prints only on left side of page.


Hello,

In printing web pages and email please try to check also the print setting before you print the page cause word document files and web pages are not the same in there printing setting. Web pages and emails has different setting so my recommendation is that when you print email and webpages next time then please check the printer settings then modify it the same settings as you wish or as your word document's output.
Thanks

The printer will print OK from the desktop, but when I print from emails it cuts the right margin back about 2" - nothing will print on the right hand side of the page. I tried dumping the driver program...


Dear Glenn27,
As you mentioned, printer works fine normally however the issue is only while printing emails.. so I would like to know the email program that is in use .. I mean, do you use Outlook, Outlook Express or webmail or Lotus notes etc..
If this is a repeated question then I would like to apologies as we experts are not allowed to peep into other experts' solutions so I cannot see the responses by the previous expert.

Also please let me know the following printer settings ..
AUTO WRAP, RIGHT MARGIN, LEFT MARGIN,

What happens when you copy the email text to a standard text editor like Notepad or Ms Word and then try printing .. does it still print with right margin extended?

Waiting for your response.

Regards,
Srinivas

Margin problem


Problem---Printer prints email on the very edge of the paper and leaves off the first 3 letters of every word down the edge of that margin. If you have Windows Live Mail forget trying to fix it from there. Clicking File will not give you the page setup option you are looking for. Go to the bottom of the screen, click "all programs", look for and click "Internet Explorer", click File, click "page setup". A screen comes up in which you can change the margins. The left margin is probably set on .25. Change it to .75. Okay. Go back and run a test email.
