Print event of Microsoft Outlook

P: 14
Good day,

I was wondering if there is a way to catch the print event of Microsoft Outlook, or some way to write macros to run an event before printing an email.

The reason for this is, it seems that one can't get rid of the to, from, cc, etc. heading of an email when one needs to print (some versions of outlook can do this, others can't), and some of the emails that are going to be printed has to be in a letter format (i.e., without that header), since the email is sent as html, I can get the html and print it normally.

The thing is, I need to check when the print event of outlook is called (again, different versions are going to be used), so that I can get the html of the email (if need be).

How can I check if this event is called?

The setup of this procedure can't be too complicated, as the people who are going to use this are pensioners, and they wouldn't want to go thru a lot of hassle to print an email.

why not just save the e-mail message as another format? For example save the e-mail as a word doc...edit it how you'd like and print it.

It's too much hassle for the people using it (Pensioners are going to use it).

I know what I want to be done, the thing is, I don't know how to call it, i.e., I know the code to get it done, but I don't know how to catch the print event.
