    Printing email (Netscape 6.2)

    Hi;

    Does anyone know how to stop Netscape 6.2 printing all the header junk in emails? I haven't been able to find a setting for this and am highly annoyed at the wasted paper, plus having the content starting 2/3 of the way down the page, when I try to print an email.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Yeah, junk Netscape 6.2 and load Mozilla!

    Sorry, I guess I've got an attitude problem about Netscape 6.x

    Well, I'm not entirely happy with it (to say the least) but would still like to be able to print emails without all the junk. Anyone know how?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    A shot in the dark - do you have header viewing turned OFF and it STILL prints all the header info? Never seen that before, but if you're viewing the full header info, one would expect it to print. In case you haven't turned it off, in MOZILLA you do that with View, Headers, Normal. Not sure what it is in Netscape 6 though. (Sorry, no offense intended)

    Thanks, I'll check for that when I get home. [img]/forums/images/smilies/ohmy.gif[/img]) I do know, though, that I don't see the header info when I open emails beyond the usual to, from, subject stuff. Here's hoping...

    The header setting is already at 'normal,' so it looks like that's not it. I can't believe - I can't BELIEVE - they allowed this to go through. What a horrid, inexcusable way to print email.

    Re: Printing email (Netscape 6.2)

    This CERTAINLY isn't an answer to the problem, but have you thought about installing Netscape 7? I don't know if your problem is still there, BUT, unlike the rampant complaints about 6.x all I've been hearing about Version 7 are some pretty positive comments. I know that Netscape 7 is based on the code for Mozilla 1.0.1 and I have used Mozilla 1.0 and now 1.1 without any of these kinds of quirks. If you decide to give 7 a go, my opinion is that you should UNINSTALL 6.x after copying your bookmarks, address book and mail to a temporary holding place. Whatever you do, DON'T ever install a version of Netscape on top of a previous version. Corruptions have a tendancy not to go away in those cases. Let us know what happens next.....

    Great, thanks for your help. <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16> Do you know of a good resource (like this one) where I can research any NS 7 headaches ahead (Hah, a pun!) of time? I'd rather not get decent email printing then have to deal with some other major annoyance....

    I haven't READ any reviews per se, but I bet if you do a Google newsgroups search, you'll find lots. There are quite a number of Netscape newsgroups but I don't follow them any more.
