I have a couploe of gonzo big Contact lists in Outlook XP. I need to be able to print one of them out, 446 contacts, double sided paper, each letter starting its own section, 5-1/2" x 8-1/2".

I tried on two different WinXP-SP2 computers, home and work,, two printers at work, HP 5150 inkjet and Samsung ML-2010 laser printer, and one printer at home, HP 5650 inkjet. All three printers have a print double-sided option.

At work on the work computer, the 5150 just printed blotchy black garbage, no actual letters.
The ML-2010 would print one side and then go into paroxisms of pain and printer error, so I could never get to the second side.

At home on the 5650 and the home computer, I got the best result, which was most letters printed out fine, each starting its own section. But near the middle, the pages got screwed up so that for example, pg 52 was on the opposite side of the sheet of paper from pg 46.

Any ideas?

I would export to word or excel where you can better control the formatting and see it on print preview.

Thanks, they do not get me where I need to be.

I also looked at Thunderbird, but it is much simpler in form and way not formatted the way I need it to be, and no extensions to do the job.
