My newest printer, an HP Color Laserjet prints like a champ from Claws
Mail. The other old workhorse, my Ricoh B/W Laser AP2600 works via Cups
1.4.6 for Acrobat Reader etc. and via lpr for text files sent by

But I can't print mail from Claws through the Ricoh via Cups. And I
hate to waste those expensive HP cartridges on B/W work. 

When I send a Claws mail message to the Ricoh via Cups it warms up and
then stops. The Cups print queue  says it is a finished job. 

PLease tell me a way I can get it printed, other than cut and paste
into Gvim. Yes Gvim will print to it too.
