It is anachronistic and antagonistic, but sometimes it makes sense to print emails.

In Windows Live Mail, Windows Mail and Outlook Express, printing an email message is a lot easier than writing a properly formatted reply.

Print an Email in Windows Live Mail, Windows Mail or Outlook Express

To print a message from Windows Live Mail, Windows Mail or Outlook Express:

  • Highlight the message you want to print in its mailbox.
    • Unfortunately, you cannot select and print multiple messages at once.
  • Click the Print toolbar button.
    • Alternatively, select File | Print... from the menu or
    • hit Ctrl-P.
  • Adjust any printer settings you deem necessary.
  • Click Print.

Tweak Windows Live Mail, Windows Mail or Outlook Express Printing Parameters

If you tweak the print settings in Internet Explorer a bit, you can use a larger font for printing, adjust printer margins or even print emails including their background images.
