Hi, Thank for you response.
Outlook was uninstalled and reinstalled, but the problem continue.
We installed SP6 recently in order to revert the problem.
We reinstall our printer driver but this didn't solve the problem.
When I try to print with another application (outlook is opened) the applicattion keep waiting. When I tried open the printer in the dialog box in control panel I received the following message:
"The printer is in use for another application".
Note: I don't speak English, I hope you can understand.

If you have recently upgraded the workstation to SP6, then you can try to revert to SP4 and check if the problem still exists.

You may also try to re-install your printer driver and check if this solves your problem.

Hope this helps you out,

Rafik El-Raheb.
