Tired of 1000 People in
the To: Line?
Have you received
an email from someone that you really wanted to print out, but didn't
because it had a large number of names in the To: and/or CC: line?
Very annoying, isn't it? Unfortunately, Outlook 2000 or 2002 doesn't
appear to let us easily print messages without that very long list
of names at the beginning. That "stuff" like "To", "From:", "Sent",
and "Subject:" is called the "header".
Some research has
uncovered a way that will allow you to edit an individual message
so that when you print it, it won't print the "To:" (and or "CC:"
line. See the instructions below:
To Modify the Message
Form in Outlook
- Open the mail
message in Outlook.
- On the Tools
Menu (of the email), select Forms, and then click Design This
- Right-click to
select the field you want to remove, (select the field, not
its label; You should right click out to the right side of the
word "To": and go to properties. If the "CC:" field is also
full of names, you can repeat the procedure on that part too)
on the shortcut menu, click Properties.
- On the Validation
tab, uncheck the box in front of "Include this field for Printing
and Save As" and then click OK.
- Click on the
X in the upper right corner to close the message—click YES to
save the changes to the message!
- Open the email
message again from your inbox and print the message from Outlook.
removed in step three will not print. Other mail messages are not
Remember, this is
only a fix for the one email you have open, you will have to do
this to each long "header-ed" email you receive and wish to print!
