Outlook Print Margins Cut Off

Many people have reported left (or other) margins being cut-off when printing HTML messages from Outlook XP / 2003.

Changing the page setup in Outlook proves useless because HTML messages are not printed by Outlook itself - it uses IE’s print settings to print.

So if your margins are off you must change them within Internet Explorer to fix the problem.

  1. Open Internet Explorer
  2. Go to “File” in the menu bar
  3. Choose “Page Setup”
  4.   Under “margins” all margins should be set to 0.75 inches

For Plain Text and Rich Text emails within Outlook, go to File and Page Setup from within Outlook and set the margins to 0.5 or 0.75 inches.
