Author: Kelly Last Modified: 2017-04-07

When printing an email in Outlook, it will print both of message header and message body in the email. However, in some special cases, you may just need to print out the message header with the subject, sender, recipients, etc. This article will introduce two solutions to do it:

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.

Actually, Outlook does not support to print the message header only. However, you can extract the internet headers of an email, and then print it in a new email or Microsoft Word.

1. In the Mail view, double click to open the email whose internet headers you will print.

2. In the opening Message window, please click File > Info > Properties.

3. Now the Properties dialog box comes out. (1) Place the cursor in the Internet Headers box, (2) press Ctrl + A keys to select all content in the Internet Headers box, (3) next press Ctrl + C keys to copy the content, (4) and finally click the Close button. See screenshot:

4. Now click Home > New Email to create a new email in Outlook, or create a new document in Word, and press Ctrl + V keys to paste the content of Internet Headers.

5. Click File > Print to print the pasted Internet headers. After printing, please close the new email or document without saving.
