A bunch of people at my work were having issues printing emails from outlook – the text for some of the emails came out super small, like fine print you’d see on a contract for your soul. At first it seemed like it was just happening to random emails, but after some research we figured out that it was because the users also had the new Internet Explorer 7 installed.

Apparently there’s an incompatibility issue between IE7 and pre-2007 versions of Outlook that messes up printing emails that were HTML formatted. And to top it off there is no fix for it. Thanks Microsoft!

Moral of story: If you print a lot of emails from Outlook, don’t install Internet Explorer 7.
