SYMPTOMS

When you print items using the Memo style, a name is automatically printed at the top of the page. There are no options in Page Setup to allow you to omit or change the name.

CAUSE

The name that Outlook prints at the top of an item when using the Memo style is the name used in your e-mail service in the Outlook Profile.

RESOLUTION

Use either of the following methods.

Method 1: Omit the Name

If you do not want a name to appear at the top of your printed item, create a profile that does not contain an e-mail service, but uses your current Personal Folders file.

To determine your personal folders file location and name, see the "More Information" section later in this article.

NOTE: If you have your e-mail delivered to a Microsoft Exchange Server and also store your Contacts, Calendar, Journal, Tasks, and Notes folders on the Exchange Server, the following method will not work.

Creating a New Profile:

  1. If Outlook is open, quit Outlook.
  2. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
  3. Double-click the Mail or Mail And Fax icon.
  4. Click Show Profiles and then click Add to start the Inbox Setup Wizard.
  5. Click to select Use the following information services, click to select all the services in your current profile except e-mail, and then click Next.


NOTE: If you have no services selected, click Manually configure information services, and then click Next.

  1. Type a unique name for the profile, such as NoMail, and click Next.
  2. Type the requested information as you step through the Inbox Setup Wizard.


NOTE: If you selected no services in Step 5, you must add either the Personal Address Book or the Personal Folders service to create a profile.

  1. Click Finish when you reach the end of the wizard.
  2. On the General tab under When starting Microsoft Windows Messaging, use this profile, click to select the NoMail profile in the list, click Close, close the Control Panel, and then start Outlook.

When you print an item using the Memo style, no name will print at the top of the page.

Method 2: Print Another Name at the Top of the Printed Item

If you want another user's name to appear at the top of your printed item, create a profile that contains an Internet Mail service with the user's name in the Your Full Name box.

NOTE: If you have your e-mail delivered to a Microsoft Exchange Server and also store your Contacts, Calendar, Journal, Tasks, and Notes folders on the Exchange Server, the following method will not work.

  1. Determine your personal folder's file location and name. To do this, see the "More Information" section later in this article.
  2. If Outlook is open, quit Outlook.
  3. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
  4. Double-click the Mail or Mail And Fax icon.
  5. Click Show Profiles; then click Add to start the Inbox Setup Wizard.
  6. Click to select Use the following information services, click to select Internet Mail, and then click Next.
  7. Type a unique name for the profile, such as FakeMail, and then click Next.
  8. Type the requested information as you work through the Inbox Setup Wizard. When asked for settings in Internet Mail, it is not necessary to type in valid settings, but you must type at least one character.


When you receive the prompt for Your Full Name in the Internet Mail configuration, type the user's name that you want to appear at the top of the printed item.

NOTE: It is not necessary to type a valid e-mail address or account name because this profile will not be used to send Internet Mail.

  1. Click Finish when you reach the end of the wizard.
  2. On the General tab under When starting Microsoft Windows Messaging, use this profile, click to select the FakeMail profile in the listbox, click close, close the Control Panel and then start Outlook.

When you print an item using the Memo style, the user's name indicated in the Internet Mail settings will print at the top of the page.
