Printing e-mails from Outlook Express

  JohnReed58 18:10 20 Sep 2003

Somehow my Outlook Express 5 has been corrupted when printing off a Hotel Web Site. It now prints out e-mails in 14 or 16 font size. I can find no way to make it revert to 11 or 12. The Tools/Options/Compose route has no effect at all, nor does selecting the text in a message and making it smaller on screen.
This happens if I connect to either of my 2 inkjets, both were OK before this corruption.
It is only the text of the messages that this applies to, the headings are fine.
Anyone know how to correct it?

Go to Internet Explorer, View > Text Size and set it to Medium.

Outlook Express > Tools > Options > Read tab > Fonts button, set the Font size to Medium.

Tried the Outlook Express route first but that made no difference, then the Internet Explorer proposal - did the trick (I used the "Smaller" setting and it worked). I was surprised as I thought they were two separate programs.
Thank you

They are two seperate programmes, JohnReed58, but they do have a lot in common when it comes to printing in OE, page setup for OE is another option that can be/needs to be set in IE. Glad that sorted it for you. :-)

You have to make the same settings for IE and OE - it's best to set both to Medium - from View>Text Size.

If you don't configure OE the same as IE you can end up with e-mails being printed out in a very, very large font size...:-)
