IMac Computer & HP Color LaserJet 2605dn printer. My printer

This answer was rated:

IMac Computer & HP Color LaserJet 2605dn printer. My printer has suddenly "decided" to downsize the font when I print an email. It will print a webpage just fine & pdf files, but the emails in Apple Mail 4.5 are suddenly printing with a very small font.

Where do I find the settings to correct that?
Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to assisting you today with your question and providing the best answer possible.

First I need some information and I also want you to check some things that may or may not be affecting the situation :

Please go to the Apple logo on the upper left of the screen, go to About This Mac (DO NOT Select More Info), and tell me the Version (under Mac OS X), the Processor and the Memory, it is all right there.

Click on the first icon in the Dock the "Finder", then click on Go at the top of the screen, you will see a drop down menu, go to Utilities. When that opens double click on the application called Disk Utility. When Disk Utility opens you will see your hard drive (usually Macintosh HD) on the left. Highlight your hard drive and click on Verify Disk on the far right. If that is OK in green type, then click on Repair Permissions on the left.

Note: If Verify Disk is not OK try to Repair. If Repair is successful then Repair Permissions if it is not successful let me know.
