When i try to print a hard copy of an e-mail all I can get is a screen saying "Print preview failed" how do I overcome t Maxie C 8/14/11 12:15 PM
I occasionally need to produce a hard copy of an e-mail ie. Flight tickets, rail card etc. I have always been able to achieve this however since a couple of days ago I have been unable to print out a copy. When I click on the print icon a screen comes up stating that "Print preview failed", it will not let me go any further, can anyone help, I am not very expert at computers and would like some instruction as to the solution.

We are having the same problem and are unable to print anything from email, which is with yahoo mail/att.net.  Could the email server & the new Chrome print updates be incompatible?  If so, is there a fix or patch for this?

I've been having the same problems. Tried something new today and it worked for me. Instead of clicking on Print at the top of the email....I just right clicked in the middle of the email content. A box will pop up and give you options..one of which is Print. Click on Print and your preview will show up as well as your option to Print.
Click Print..and you're good to go.  Good luck to you...it's working for me, and I'm happy now.

Forgot to mention....once the preview screen shows up, on the left hand side of screen it will ask for Destination..make sure you choose the printer you
want to use if it's not already in the box. Click Print...should work.

Thank you, Diane.  I was having the same problem but your right-click solution worked for me to.  Much preferable to resorting to Internet Explorer which I had been doing whenever I wanted to print.

Hey Google codesmiths:  this can't be too hard to fix!

Only problem is it prints the whole screen and not just the email as IE does.

Actually, on closer inspection, the Right-click-print is just a screen dump, it doesn't print the rest of the email that's not on screen.  Back to IE or copying, pasting into Word, then printing!
