Outlook uses Internet Explorer for print rendering.
If you have IE7 installed, one way to resolve it is to uninstall IE7 and go back to IE6.

IE7 introduced the new 'shrink-to-fit' feature for printing webpages and has it set as the default. Because of this, large emails are being confined to one page, and thus shrunk very very tiny. There is no way to disable this 'shrink-to-fit' feature from outlook, and no way to open the print preview window from outlook to manually change it to 100% each time.

Here is a Microsoft Knowledgebase article that has a work-around:
Scroll to the bottom and use the Registry fix.

Please let me know how things go.
