Outlook 2k printing problem

By techrific ·
Weird problem boys and girls, sometimes an email is recieved in outlook 2k, and we cant print it. It is going throught the same print servers as all the rest, utilizing the same drivers as well. All other emails print fine. Win2k Print servers with PCL6.

Outlook 2k printing problem

by timwalsh In reply to Outlook 2k printing probl ...

We really need some more information than you have given us.

What is the operating system of the computer trying to print?

What else is the user doing when tryong to print? What other applications are running?

Is it always the same user that has problems?

Is the email always from the same sender?

Is the client OS NT 4or later? If so, is the event viewer showing any error messages?
Does the event viewer on the printe server show any error messages?

What indications do you receive that the email won't print (other than the fact that it doesn't come out of the printer)? Do you get an error message on the screen? Does the print jo spool to the print server from the client? How do you clear the failed print job (cancel, reboot, etc.)?

Does the problem email contain graphics or a any attachments?

What we are looking for is definite error messages that point to the problem or consistencies that may point to the probable cause of the problem. Truly random problems can be almost impossible to solve without a LOT of trial and error.

Just wondering if these messages you are trying to print are all in HTML format?
