I am the person that will be helping you today.

Please, elaborate on how you wish this to work. Some email threads will be linked to other emails. Do you want to somehow capture every email thread and print them out all at once?

I will be standing by, looking forward to your response.

Thank you,

I want to print every email but the threads are making so many duplicates. Ideadly i need a robot to read the email and extract the first part of a thread. Or something that detect duplicate text an delete it.

Expert:  Jason Jones replied 1 year ago.

I don't know of any such application that would do what you are requesting.

I have run out of ideas.

For this reason, I am opting out of the question and allowing another expert the chance to help.

The next expert will see all that is on this page, so there will be no need to repeat anything.

When another expert picks this up, you will be notified by email.

Thank you for your patience.

My name is*****'m a certified computer professional with 15 years of experience. It would be my pleasure to assist you with this. I am uploading a pdf file that describes in detail how to turn off conversation view in Outlook. If you do this, this may eliminate a lot of the the threads and duplication.

Thanks but it's not the solution. I need to crop out the top email of each thread to avoid the number of duplicates I get in a batch print.

Expert:  GeekGal replied 1 year ago.

Thanks for letting me know. I'm sorry that didn't help you. I will "opt out" now in the hopes that another expert may be able to help. Don't worry. you won't have to repeat the question. When another expert picks it up you will be notified and they will be able to see the entire conversation. Have a great afternoon!

Hi, my name is Dustin. I hate to kick a dead horse. But the conversation view suggestion should work.

Heres why, if you disable conversation view. Then you will no longer have one email with ten threads for replies and replies to those replies.

Instead, each email will be seperated into its own spot. Then, you can simply print the ones you want instead of printing the whole list of replies back and forth.

Can you clarify if you even tried the conversation view or applied my explanation above to your printing attempts?

It helped a bit but not what I was after. I am now looking at scripts that will do the batch cropping.

Expert:  Dustin replied 1 year ago.

I think Instead of batch cropping, which is Doubtful youd find a script for that, but possible.

Maybe disabling conversation view and then trying one of the print addins such as this one.
