|OLKeeper reliably prevents users from closing their Outlook window and thus possibly missing reminders or e-mails.|
The PrintOut method of Outlook's MailItem object always prints the entire email, there's no way to specifiy to print just a part of it. However, since Outlook 2007 you can access the very powerful object library of Word, which allows to do what you want. Although it's not possible to directly print an email via Word you can copy the content of the email to a Word document, and then print that one.
This sample copies the entire content of an email to a new Word document, and then prints only page #1 of that document. The sample prints the first selected email of the active folder. You could also run the 'PrintFirstPage' script by a rule to print certain new emails automatically.
(Add a reference to the 'Microsoft Word x.0 Object Library' via Tools/References.)
Public Sub TestPrintFirstPage() Dim Mail As Outlook.MailItem Set Mail = Application.ActiveExplorer.Selection(1) PrintFirstPage Mail End Sub Public Sub PrintFirstPage(Mail As Outlook.MailItem) Dim wdApp As Word.Application Dim wdDoc As Word.Document Dim olDoc As Word.Document Set wdApp = CreateObject("Word.Application") Set wdDoc = wdApp.Documents.Add(Visible:=True) Set olDoc = Mail.GetInspector.WordEditor olDoc.Range.copy wdDoc.Range.Paste wdDoc.PrintOut Range:=wdPrintFromTo, From:="1", To:="1" DoEvents wdDoc.Close False wdApp.Quit End Sub

This example prints the selected text of an open email.
Public Sub PrintSelection() Dim wdApp As Word.Application Dim wdDoc As Word.Document Dim wdSelection As Word.Selection Dim wdWin As Word.Window Dim olDoc As Word.Document Set wdApp = CreateObject("Word.Application") Set wdDoc = wdApp.Documents.Add(Visible:=True) Set olDoc = Application.ActiveInspector.WordEditor Set wdWin = olDoc.Windows(1) Set wdSelection = wdWin.Selection wdSelection.Range.copy wdDoc.Range.Paste wdDoc.PrintOut DoEvents wdDoc.Close False wdApp.Quit End Sub
