    At my place of employment we create HTML e-mails. Both internally at at my client we have trouble printing the e-mails to show all of the elements. There are color boxes and bars that won't print out, even though the over-laying copy does print. We've tried Safari and Firefox and have had no luck with either. My client had some luck sending a file to a Windows machine where it printed alright from IE.
    It even strips out the color when saving as a PDF.
    Is this an endemic problem or is there an answer that is escaping me (a long-time Mac user) and our IT team?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    TIA,
    Rob

    Most browsers do not print background colors. IE probably worked because it has an option to enable that behavior.

    Thanks for that. Any idea of any OS X browsers that do offer that option in lieu of IE?

    Thanks again

    Looks like every OS X browser can do that via the print settings window (well, at least safari and firefox can). It's under the section titled the same as the browser name. (The dropdown menu with Copies & Pages, Layout, Scheduler, etc)
