After tapping on the print option, you will see a print preview of you email document. Notice how its beautifully formatted with the sender, subject, date, and recipient separated from the actual message itself with a border. The print preview will ask you to select a printer and number of copies. Do not touch any of these.
Instead, use your fingers to zoom into the print preview. Zoom in all the way till the page fills the screen.
