Outlook: Including Header Information When Printing Drafts

When I print a draft of an email message, only the body of the message prints. How can I print the header information too?

You've encountered one of the differences between WordMail (i.e., using Microsoft Word as your email editor) and the regular Outlook editor, which does print headers in draft messages. The solution is to temporarily turn off WordMail before you print your message. First, save and close your message. Next, click Tools, Options, Mail Format and clear the Use Microsoft Word to edit e-mail messages check box. Then, open your draft message and print it. After you print the message, you can turn WordMail back on and reopen the message to edit it.
