When you print a message from Outlook, the chances are that the printout will not include a list of the files attached to that message. This drives many people crazy.

I went looking in the Microsoft tech support forums. Lots of people are unhappy about Outlook’s printing options. This problem may disappear in a future service pack.

In the meantime, there is a workaround, described in this Microsoft tech note.

– Open the message by double-clicking on it.

– Click on Edit / Edit Message.

– Click on Format / Plain Text.

– Click on Print.

The printed version will show the attachments.

Alternatively, there is an add-in program that corrects this problem. I don’t have any experience with it, so keep my disclaimer in mind. Click here for information about the Outlook add-in.
