I just tested an html email print, and all I got to print to the PDF
printer file was the footer. However, I'm on claws 3.7.6 using the
fancy plugin. It did bring up an error at first saying that to print to
html I needed to install html2ps which I did, there may be other ps
(postscript) related files that are at play. This isn't something I do
very often, if at all right now (i.e. print emails, html or otherwise).

I also recall there were some messages (last year?) on the list about
html printing from claws, so you might be able to search the archives.
Or if anyone on the list has some specific pointers, please share.

Sorry that's not more helpful.
