We have this ¿"*(_&"/*! problem since few weeks in our office. I would say almost since we've upgraded to IE8.

When a user want to print a HTML email with tables or any other HTML (Pictures, tables...) stuff in it, the email is not printed correctly on Letter pages (8½x11). The whole email seems to be bigger than the 8½x11 page itself. It's not scaled correctly...

  • I've uncheck the "shrink to fit" feature. No luck
  • I've set margins correctly (Print fine with non-html emails) I've set the font size (View
  • Text size) as smallest, no luck still...

So right now I'm clueless.

Any takers on this one?

Thanks a bunch!

I see that you tried setting the margins, but did you try setting all of the margins to zero? When you enter them as zero, they will usually default to something slightly higher, but regardless I've seen this trick work on occasion. – boot13 Sep 16 '10 at 16:04
I try it now!... not now! She's AFK – r0ca Sep 16 '10 at 16:10
Why are you printing e-mail? Tsk tsk, that's naughty. – Joel Coehoorn Sep 16 '10 at 16:15
@boot13: It's not working. I can't set margins to 0. It's 0.18 for up/down and 0.something for sides. The email is still not printed correctly. – r0ca Sep 16 '10 at 16:31
@Joel: The lawyers need to have the printed information. His legal assistant tried to print it but it's not printing correctly as described below. – r0ca Sep 16 '10 at 16:32

Issue fixed. I had to disable the "Shrink to fit" feature... Or enable it in some cases.
