How to Print an Email or Conversation

Here how to print an email or conversation in Mailbird.

 

Right Click on Message List pane

Select an email or conversation, right click it and select Print Conversation or use the faster keyboard shortcut which is Ctrl + Shift + P.

 

 

Option Arrow on top right of Message View

Select an email so it is viewed in the far right message view pane. At the top of the message, you will see several gray icon options.

Click on the 3rd one from the left which is a downward pointing Options arrow icon.

From here you can select Print Message or use the faster keyboard shortcut Ctrl + P, or you can select Print Conversation or again use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift + P.

 

 

Reference Print Shortcuts

You can always reference the keyboard shortcuts for printing by either going to the top left "Mailbird" drop-down menu in the main window > Shortcuts or hit Shift + ? This pulls up all the list of shortcuts. Search for Print to find all keyboard shortcuts associated with printing in Mailbird.

    Too bad, this doesn't actually work. Printing a conversation only prints the first part of a forwarded conversation and not the part that you actually want.

    Is there a way to preview what will print before you print?  This would be helpful to save paper and ink.

    I seem to only get a file called "about:blank" to print when I sent a message directly from mailbird, which then makes my printer say it is in error state.  If I "print" my message to a pdf file and then send the pdf file to the printer it works.

    All I get printed is the initial message not the included forwarded message below. It displays "Begin forwarded message: [Quoted text hidden]. Does not seem to matter if you display it before printing or use select all then print. Both ctrl+shift+p and ctrl+p produce the same output. 

    When will this be fixed?

    I am getting the same message as Phillip.  Hidden text does not print, even when I tell it to print the entire conversation.  The part not printing is part of a forwarded email.  I will also send an email.

    I am having trouble also with this facility on mailbird.

    I have booked a holiday and can download the pdf attached but not the text of the message which I am required to do and present at the airport.

    I am able to do this in windows mail !!!

    I have only just got this problem today.

    Please help.

    Print "conversation" does not work. Only the top message in the string prints and then this statement [quoted text hidden]. if I first expand the message string so all are visible, it still only prints the last message. Am I doing something wrong or is this feature broken.

    The solution I have found is to select "Print message" (NOT "Print conversation"!) in the last message in the email string, then select Adobe PDF or PDF from the available printers.  Create the PDF, then open and print from within the PDF.  It has worked every time for me.

    Stephanie, your solution worked just fine for me. I also found that if I just use ctrl+p and send to my printer (used print preview to be sure) it prints the entire string of emails.

    Thanks, Jim

    Mailbird isn't finding my wireless network printer. How do I add it so I can print emails?
