    I have Internet Explorer 5.5 and when I try and print my Yahoo Mail all I get is garbage characters. All the other programs I have, like MS Word etc, print correctly. In the Programs setup section of internet Explorer Outlook Express is selected for email. I would like to fix this and be able to print my email

    No I actually view the email through Internet Explorer. I haven't set up Outlook Express to receive email.

    this is what I found...in Yahoo mail
    Online Support
    Yahoo! Mail Home > Mail Help > Search Results
    Search Results Found 1 article for printing
    Showing 1-1 of 1

    Mail > Receiving Mail



    How can I print messages or my address book?
    Currently, Yahoo! Mail itself doesn't contain a print feature, but you can easily print your messages or address book using the print feature included in your browser. For best results, make sure that the window or frame you're printing is not wider than your printer's printable area...

    It is the browsers print feature that I am having a problem with. With the message open and clearly readable when I press print on the internet explorer browser all I get out is lots of pages of unrecognisable/readable garbage
