Outlook Prints Outside Margins

By qballrail ·
When a user of mine prints out email, the document is printed outside the margins unless the message is in plain text.

Stationary has been disabled, margins adjusted in print setup but it still spreads off either side. Short of removing and reinstalling Outlook, what other options do I have?

It is a driver issue. Try downloading the latest driver and re-installing the printer

I had the same problem with a few users awhile back.
Open Internet explorer
Page Setup
and set the left and right margins to at least .5 they will probably be at .256 or some similar number. For some reason Outlook has IE handle printing for Outlook (yes outlook)If you using IE 7 then Page Setup is under the printer icon on the upper right hand side of IE.

Spot on

My user was always losing the left-hand side of printed from Outlook. I altered Page Setup in IE, gave it a tad more margin, and her printouts are spot on. A really helpful answer thanks.

My boss just came out of her office ready to kill someone. Her emails are spread all over the page. Sure enough her margins were .25 in IE. set them to .50 and that was that. I am the hero for a day!!
