When you print a plain text message and select a fixed-width font, the output is in a proportional font. The print preview appears correctly, but when the message is printed, it is still in a proportional font. For example, if you set the font of a plain text message to Courier New and then print the message, the message is printed with Arial font.


Print the message from an Outlook 2000 client.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article. This problem was corrected in Outlook 2000.
