Body of email message won't print

I was using WM without problems until one day, my inbox folders disappeared
and I was no longer able to print emails and web pages. On the emails, all
that would print was "Page 1 of 1", my name at the top (as usual) the "From,
To, Sent, Subject" and then the date at the bottom. I restored from my backup
and the inbox folders reappeared and I can print from the web, but the email
printing problem remains. I'm having to use a Yahoo Mail address to be able
to print any of my emails. Is there a way to fix this problem. I am new to
Windows Vista and Windows Mail.

I have EXACTLY the same problem - I can print the headers only, but not the
body of the message. I tried contacting the printer manufacturer, but they
claim the problem must be the settings in the software - but I can't find
where to change them. ANY HELP OUT THERE?

I have exactly the same problem no matter how I try to print. I've tried
printing from the preview pane and an opened message using both the
print button and the print option under the file menu.

All I seem to be able to print from each email is the "To", "From",
"Sent" and "Subject" lines at the top of the page.

Short of reinstalling windows does anyone have any ideas?

Upgrading to Windows Live Mail may help:

Can you print from Internet Explorer? That is the print engine that WinMail
uses.

I checked, and can still print perfectly from Internet Explorer - but Windows
Mail still only prints the header (and Page Number footer) of email messages.
I might try that downloading of Windows Mail Live - but it appears to be the
same program... Is it different?

Windows Mail and Windows Live Mail are different. The internals
(programming) of the two are very different. One critical difference is that
Microsoft fixes bugs in Windows Live Mail but the existing bugs in Windows
Mail will never be fixed.

There are a LOT of bugs in WLM that will never be fixed either. MS just
doesn't fix bugs.

Try going to Start | Search and type

regsvr32 ole32.dll

and

regsvr32 inetcomm.dll

and see if that makes any difference.
