Windows 7: Outlook 2010 emails being printed with blank pages between each page

Outlook 2010 emails being printed with blank pages between each page

Hello everyone

I recently installed Outlook 2010 and I have got the following strange problem and I was wondering
whether anyone else had the same problem and found a solution.

Whenever I print an Outlook email, the pages come out in reverse order (page 2 then page 1) with a blank cover page which sometimes has "Microsoft Outlook - memo style OUTLOOK.EXE" printed
on the middle of it, and a blank sheet between each page of the message.

It only happens with Outlook. Printing is normal with Word, Excel, etc.

Any suggestions, please?

In Outlook please go to File - Print, highlight Memo Style, then click Print Options button above. In a new window Print, hightlight Memo Style again. Click Define Styles... In a new window, make sure that Memo Style is hightlighted and click RESET button.

If this wont help, click Edit button in the same window, and make sure all the parameters make sense and are correct (page size, etc.)

Hi Neutron16

Thank you for your reply. I followed the steps you described but it did not make a difference. I also
checked all the parameters of "Memo Style".

In Format tab: there is nothing under options
Print using gray shading is not ticked.
Fonts has default values 12pt Segoi UI for titles and 10pt Segoi UI for Fields

In Paper tab:
Paper type is set to: A4 (It was Letter before)
Paper size is set to: A4
Paper Source: Default paper tray (automatically select)
Orientation: Portrait

In Header/Footer tab:
There is nothing in the boxes.
Header and Footer is set to 8pt tahoma.
Reverse on even pages is not ticked.

I will re-install a newer version of the printer drivers and I will report back.
If you have anymore suggestions please let me know.

Many thanks

Re-installing a newer version of the printer drivers seems to have fixed the problem.:)
Printer Model: HP LJ 2055d
Printer Drivers: Universal printing drivers PCL6

I just hope the fix is permanent.
