Thanks! I didn't even know such a thing existed -- never needed it
for any other application.
I installed it, and it works fine, with 2 caveats:
1. it won't print in color (cups-pdf itself does, as printing its test
page shows, and so does for example firefox).
2. it doesn't print the from/to/cc/subject fields for HTML email.
(I'm using the "fancy" plugin, not the "dillo" one). It prints it
just fine for normal email but for HTML email, even if I choose the
first of the "message part selection boxes" (the one for the full
message), it doesn't.
Do you see these same behaviours? If not, any idea what I can do to fix them?
I don't print often, but when I need to, I really need to.

Yup, but that's easy enough once you know where to look.
