Outlook Express 6 e-mail (tiny) print problem

  BGL 16:13 11 Aug 2006

We are having trouble with Outlook Express 6 printing tiny text when there is an attachment to the e-mail of a large size i.e. photo. It is condensing the print to an almost unreadable size. Also on some e-mails it is losing the top part of the e-mail (the to, from, subject etc.) and merely prints the body of the e-mail.

We have tried highlighting the text when there is an attachment and selecting print but it still prints out tiny.

This has only recently happened and seems to have coincided with us downloading the latest version of Internet Explorer(7).

Could this be anything to do with it?

Any ideas how I can get my normal printing back?

We are running Windows XP and I am printing on a Brother HL-1450 laser printer.

Outlook Express uses Internet Explorer text settings.

In IE go to View>Text Size and, if it is not set on Medium (the standard) Enable it.

If the text size is set to Large, Larger etc e-mails normally print out in a much larger font size and vice versa.

Thanks for your help guys.

Had to revert back to IE6 - e-mails print perfectly again.
