Outlook Express

I can only get very small lettering when printing emails with XP,on Outlook Express.

This has unexpectedly happened just recently.

The "VIEW - TEXT SIZE" setting does not seem to work?

Anyone have a fix?

Looks like Microsoft are saying SP3 will cure.

I have all the security updates?

Seem to be going round in circles.

Will try again. Thanks.

Just noticed "This has unexpectedly happened just recently" - Do you have a "restore point" to a time before this occurred? May be worth trying.

The printed text size in Outlook Express is controlled by the text size in Internet Explorer. Open IE and go to View menu - go to Text Size and select the next largest size. Your emails will now print with larger text.

When you say View - Text Size doesn't work do you mean you cannot select a larger size?

To get them back in synch, first you have to set both IE and OE to smallest, reboot and then alter to a bigger size
