Thanks but the printers are fine. It is only Claws Mail that offsets
the print image to the left. If I print to file from Claws Mail and then
use enscript to print that file it shows the entire image. When I print
from Gvim it prints OK. The problem is specific to the print function
in Claws Mail. I just printed this message using the print function
from the "compose" window. All the lines you typed are OK but this
paragraph loses the first character of each line. 

Maybe it is a bug.
