    Can someone explain the following to me, in simple terms please? Why (in Outlook 2003), if you have a rich text email with attachments, you have an option where you can print the email and all its attachments. But, when you have an HTML email, it will not give you this option, and you have to go into each individual attachment to print its contents?

    I have users receiving both email types, and the volume of printing they are doing means it would be really useful to have that tick box on both!

    ASAIK Rich text is meant for a word processor. The attachments are attached as objects IN the text. So if you print the text, you print the attachments.
    HTML is meant for webbrowsers. Attachments are separate files and the browser puts them in place. Outlook is not a full blown webbrowser, so it might be that is just does not have the capabitities to do this.

    Not sure here.
