    Simple (?) envelope print (Outlook 2000SR-1)

    I seem to remember an old issue of your WOPR mail discussing printing an envelope directly from Outlook (2000) ?

    Anyway, I want to SIMPLY JUST PRINT a single envelope from a "contact" address in an Outlook contacts database. Should be easy enough, eh? I don't want to do a merge, start Word, answer lots of questions and finally after way-too-many keystrokes get to print the thing, if all goes well.

    Any ideas?

    In Ottawa, Canada.

    This is an obvious piece of functionality that Outlook should have had from 97, but we are still waiting.
    The only way I know of doing it is through Word. I have a shortcut to a template on my desktop. Clicking on it with a contact open creates an envelope with the address on.
    The macro code was from an article written by Helen Feddema, not sure where I found the article.

    I've done it from Word. If you go to Tools --> Envelopes and Labels, and click on the Envelopes tab, to the right of the Delivery address label you'll see and address book button with a drop down arrow. Click on the address book button, and select your Contacts list from the "Show Names from the:" dropdown. Choose your Contact, and it will fill in the name/address information for that contact. You can then print it, or add it to the document, etc. Hope that helps.

    I'm looking for exactly the same functionality, that was asked for four months ago. Anyone else have an idea.

    I'm in contacts in outlook, I would like to have one of the print choices be Envelope. Seems like it would be a natural function. If it is not included in the program, can I define a print style as envelope?
