    Show attachments when printing (2000/2002)

    In Outlook 2000, when one prints an email with an attachment(s) the names of the attachment(s) are included with the printout. In Outlook 2002 this does not happen... just the message is printed. I have a very annoyed client who used to file a printout of a sent email as legal proof that an attachment had been sent with an email. Now, having upgraded to XP, he is upset to lose this functionality.

    Is there a way to restore the functionality and have attachments listed along with the email in a printout?

    Thanks.

    The attachment names do not print if the message format is HTML. Jefferson Scher tested and demonstrated this a while back in a thread in this Forum. (This is also true in OL 2000, don't know about earlier.)

    Back in this forum there is some code to add the attachment names into the text, but it has a side effect of trashing any fancy HTML formatting in the message. Let us know if you would like that code reposted.

    An additional note to this issue. Your client is not wise to rely legally on a printout as evidence that a file was attached to an e-mail; the appearance of an attachment can be spoofed after the e-mail is sent, and one day a smart barrister will figure this out.
