And FWIW, it's the only way to print emails, which your users might
not appreciate if being removed.

Well, I was thinking to hidden it (but not the .mimePartInfoAtc) via CSS...

Ouch!!!
Why not use a button near Forward, Delete, etc., as other email clients?
I would find it more user friendly.

Thanks.

It would print all the currently shown parts (i.e. the inline ones).

Thanks.

Because this is not a desktop client, but a browser. See the mailing
list archives for details.

probably I'm missing something, but I think that a "Print" button could
be added (near "Reply", "Forward", etc.) that will simply open the email
in a separate window (like with a double click on the message) and
automatically start the "print" action. I know that it will not be the
same as the current print implementation, but I think that it will be
good enough for most cases (and more user friendly).

Just my 2 cents...

Bye.

Possibly with some print-specific CSS to hide some unwanted elements
from the print (buttons, etc.)...

Bye.
