How to print attachments in an HTML message?



Running WinXP SP1, Office 2003 and IE 6.
If I receive an HTML formatted email, I want to be able to print the email
including all attachments.
If I just highlight the email and click File-Print, I get the Print window
and I can check the "Print attached files" box but when I click OK, I get an
error that reads "Please open this HTML message to print it.
If I open the message and click File-Print, the "Print attached files"
check-box is no longer available as an option.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to gain this functionality.

Note: if there is nothing that can be done (which I would find hard to
believe), I noticed an Outlook add-in called Print-on-Demand ($17.95 by which says it will do what I want. Seems to me that if
sperry can do it for $17.95, then MS could do it for the $$$ that I already
paid them. Has anyone bought and used this add-in?

It's a limitation of the HTML printing engine - some of the problems were
corrected in SP1 so you should install it if you haven;t already. I don;t
know if this was.
