    Hi,

    We are having a problem with Outlook XP not printing attachments. When you click file > print, the email prints out ok, but with no reference to the attachment file. I'm pretty sure there is a tick box somewhere that is causing this problem. The other machines in the office print out the reference to the attachment no problem at all. The problem is with Outlook XP SP3, on Windows XP.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Dan

    Correct me if I'm wrong but don't you have to open the attachment before you can print it? I suggest you save it to a folder, SCAN WITH A ANTI-VIRUS program FIRST, then open and print

    Are you printing to the default printer in the office?

    No, I want to print the email with reference to the attachment...not the contents of the attachment. We've figured it out now, it's a problem with Outlook which you can solve by changing the view of the email to rich text or plain text. For some reason, Outlook won't print the attachment placeholder in HTML mode...

    ...odd...

    Thanks anyway,

    Dan
