How to print emails in landscape/portrait (by default) in Outlook?

Author: Kelly Last Modified: 2020-05-29

By default, emails are printed in Portrait orientation in Outlook. If there is a wide picture in the email, the picture will be cut automatically when printing. In this condition, you may need to print the email in landscape orientation. This article introduces a method to print emails in landscape or portrait orientation by default in Outlook.

Easily print an email' message body only without header and username 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.
