    Hi Everyone,

    I am experiencing a very strage printing issue in Windows Live Mail.

    My computer has a couple of printers connected, one is a label printer, and one is a standard A4 printer.

    The label printer is set to print in Letter size (by default) and the A4 printer is set to print in A4 (by default).

    If my A4 printer is set as the default Windows printer and I attempt to print an email all is fine.

    However if my label printer is set as the default printer (this is my preference) and I manually choose to print through the A4 printer, then the resulting print comes out in Letter size!

    This is only occuring in Windows Live Mail, if I manually choose my A4 printer in Excel, Word, etc the resulting print comes out fine (e.g.: in A4 rather than Letter size).

    Here is a screen shot of my A4 printers default setting in Windows Control Panel:

    Here is a screen shot of the default settings for my A4 printer when printing from Windows Live Mail:

    It appears that Windows Live Mail is basing default print settings on my label printer (which is set to Letter) rather than my A4 printer (which is set to A4).

    If anybody has any suggestions on how I can make Windows Live Mail respect the print size defaults that are setup in Control Panel they will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Davo
