How to define or change the print styles in Outlook?

Normally there are some print styles in Microsoft Outlook with preset pager size, margins, orientation, etc. however, sometimes the preset styles may be not fit for your printings. This article will walk you through defining or changing the print styles for your needs in Microsoft Outlook.

(2) Go to the Paper tab, and you can define the paper type, paper dimensions, page size, margins, orientations, etc. for your print style.
(3) Go to the Header/Footer tab, and you can define the header and footer, and their font and font size as well.

Easily print an email without message header and username, but including background image in Outlook

As you know, when printing an email in Outlook, it will print out both of email header and email body as what you view in the Message window or Reading Pane. What's more, it usually adds your username above the message header. Here, I want to introduce the excellent Advanced Print feature of Kutools for Outlook, which enables you to print an email' message body only without the message header and username, and remaining the background image in Outlook.

Can I set the default to print double sided in outlook only?

Hi Amy D,
It needs to enable the Print Double Sides option by configure the Printer Properties. And the Printer Properties vary significant or slightly based on printers.

I was able to add a new one under print styles/define print styles. Now I cannot even if I delete some. We print emails with job information at the bottom. how do I fix that.

Copy the text you need to print. Paste it in a Word document. Done. If you have outlook installed that mean you probably have Word. Stop printing from Outlook. It's that simple.
