    Printing a selection (2000/2002)

    One of our users frequently prints just the latest part of a message exchange by opening it, highlighting the part required and then using File/Print/Selection only. This works fine with HTML messages, which appear to use the IE print routine, but can't be done with plain text messages, which just offer the Outlook 'Memo Style' print routine.
    Does anyone have any ideas how it might be possible to print just a selected part of plain text messages (and, no, he doesn't want to fiddle around cutting and pasting it into a sensible program)?
    (BTW, one workaround I attempted was to use the 'pages' selector on the print dialog to only print the first page but, of course, this somewhat weirdly just gives you a choice of All/Even/Odd!!)

    Thanks, Leif.

    Yes, that's what I mean - good, Outlook, isn't it?

    Appreciate the suggestion though.
