Auto Printing of files attached to an email

bob7771, Jun 1, 1:26am
Hi - Using Windows XP and Outlook in Office 2007. Odd thing is, whenever I print off an email that has a file attached to it (say a spreadsheet for example) the spreadsheet prints as well.

Any ideas on how to stop this from happening?

Often I want to just print off the email, generally don't need to print theattachment.

Tried highlighting the required text of the email and then choosing selection in your printer software?

That will probably work but I was hoping more for a solution to stop the attachments printing whenever I print the email - spent about an hour googling solutions but nothing obvious came up.

Change your email view from HTML to plain text. Might work?

I am thinking there is a setting or option in one of the settings screens that enables this auto print feature but I will be damned if I can find it!

In the file/print screen, is the print attachments box ticked?

I will check when i get back to the office - might be the quick print doing it automatically, hadn't thought of that before. Thanks!
