    Major printing problems with IE7 / OE6 (IE7 & WXPSP2)

    Microsoft have a major printing problem with IE7, which is potentially
    disastrous for small businesses. Not only does it cause OE6 emails to print
    without headers - when a picture is attached - & to show the message in micro
    font at top left, but it also fails to print certain web pages.

    Uninstalling IE7 & going back to IE6 does not appear to solve the problem.
    Nor does it seem to be printer specific.

    So one has to keep switching to Read All Messages in Plain Text, with OE6,
    and when researching on the web, use a page capture program instead -
    disastrous for productivity in a small office.

    We're going over to FireFox, & suggest others do the same - until such time
    as Microsoft may deign to resolve this one.

    You certainly don't appear to be alone in the boat as this thread at PCAdvisor suggests.

    As OE is irrevocably entwined with IE, using FF will not make any difference to anyone who has already installed IE7 as regards the printing of emails, will it? Or are you saying you are using FF in preference to IE because of the web-page printing issue?

    No, you're right, of course, about OE6 being intertwined with IE7 - what a crazy state if affairs! The internet is buzzing with this problem ... all over the place... one wonders how on earth it didn't surface in the Beta versions?

    Any thoughts on how long it will take Redmond to get around to resolving this one?
