I have fax to email. Every time a fax is received, an email pops up with the fax as attachment. Simply print out the attachment. That is how it was with XP. - Now with Vista and Outlook 2007 (office 2007), the same attachment is opened in the windows photo gallery.

I am unable to print A4 portrait, because there are no such options. I only have landscape options. - How am I able to print an A4 portrait as A4 portrait from windows photo gallery? Many thanks for any leads.

PS: local Microsoft helpdesk declined to help on above question and referred me to HP, because my new PC had the operating system installed when I bought it in the shop. - HP says it is a Outlook software issue and could not help...

This is certainly not an issue with Outlook. Once the picture opens in the Windows Photo Gallery Outlook's responsibility as the application that received the email/fax is over.

So now we are looking at the capability of Windows Photo Gallery as to if it can a TIFF image and print it for you.

Try this, if you have any other pictures , try opening them in the Photo Gallery and see if you get the Portrait option to print em out. Similarly try saving the tif attachment to the desktop and see if you get the Portrait option.

If neither work then you may want to download a free tiff viewer, use it to open the attachment before printing it. I have included a link to one that I came across.

Well if this fails to give you the portrait option too, then I would wonder if your printer drivers are 100% compliant with Windows Vista.

PS : Microsoft would offer you free support on a retail copy of Windows. If its an OEM installation (pre-installed when the computer was purchased) its up to your computer manufacturer to provide you free support. This is because you paid HP for the operating system and the tech support for it, when you bought the computer. Also check if the Office 2007 is a full version or trial. Most manufacturers install Office trials and customers end up assuming its a full version until it expires.
