I do not know the answer but here are a few things you should do to
figure out the problem.

First print to a file; and see the result (it should print to a PDF or
PS file) with a PDF viewer. Then print the file with the lpr command (I
am assuming you use CUPS). These steps will normally reveal if
claws-mail or your printing system is in cause and tell you where to
investigate. I suspect it is a problem with your printing system. Try
to look at the web (not necessarily in relation to FreeBSD).
