Hi,
I want to print plain text e-mail to a dot matrix printer from
Microsoft Outlook (Windows XP). The printer uses roll paper. continuous printing... NO LINE or Paper FEEDS at end of message please.
The printer we are using Epson LQ-590.
The message comes in through pop3... and I want to keep the headers
printed to minimal.
I want to make sure.. a few line e-mail message doesn't feed the
entire page like an A4 sheet with laser printer.
What steps I need to take to make sure the printer doesn't waste extra
paper.
If a 3 line message, then the printer should immediately stop after
the third line is printed.. and feed a few lines for tearing out only.
I want it to behave like a Telex Printer or SITA Messaging Printer.
Please help... how to achieve it... or any other alternative programs
to use.

Hi,

Have choose A4 in the printer properties?

If the settings are right, try to update the printer driver to the latest.

Best Regards,

Sally Tang

Why would that help?

That is an obvious answer.

Printer Driver is latest and all. And, I have contacted Epson and they have clearly said, it is up to the application to decide if to send the Paper Feed in the end or not.

Microsoft Outlook doesn't have facility to stop paper feed in the end when using "continuous printing".. that is without paper feed.

Please see this thread for more information and explanation on what application we used before (and it worked)... and now we have to change... and we need to find a solution to this.
