You may not print out email often, but when you need to, Yahoo Mail makes it easy to get a printable, copy of your messages.

You might want to print an email that contains instructions or a recipe when you're away from your phone or computer, or maybe you need to print an attachment from the email and not necessarily the email message itself.

How to Print Messages From Yahoo Mail

Follow these steps to print a specific email or entire conversation from Yahoo Mail:

  2. Right-click in an empty area of the message and select Print Page from the menu that appears.

  2. Click the link called Printable View.
  3. Print the message using the web browser's print dialog box.

How to Print Attached Photos in Yahoo Mail

To print a photo sent to you in a Yahoo Mail message, open the email, right-click on the image (or click the download icon on the image), and save the photo to the downloads folder on your computer. Then, you can print it from there. 

How to Print Attachments

You can print attachments from Yahoo Mail as well but only if you save the files to your computer first.

  1. Open the message that has the attachment you want to print.
  2. Hover your mouse over the attachment icon at the bottom of the message and choose Download or click the download symbol on the attached file.
  3. Save the file to your downloads folder or somewhere else you can find it.
  4. Open the downloaded attachment and print it using your computer's printing interface.

Note: If you want to print an email because it's easier to read offline, consider changing the text size of the online page. In most browsers, you can do this by holding down the Ctrl key and scrolling the mouse wheel forward as if you were scrolling up a page. On a Mac, hold the Command key and click the + key to enlarge the contents of the email screen.
