I dunno about you, but my printer drivers allow me to determine what the
margins of the printed are of a page should be... and my mail program
basically just does a straight text dump to printer. Should be simple enough
with drivers supporting this feature to set it up with a 1" margin on the left
and just let the printer do the auto-wrapping.

In fact, under OS/2, I could just create a separate printer object, using the
same driver but with the margins set appropriately... then it's just a simple
matter of dragging the message I want printed out of the mail proggie and
dropping it on the appropriate printer.
