Better support for programs
with strange behaviours.
While printing an attachment, OLFax opens the
program which is able to print this one (for example
Microsoft Word for doc, Acrobat Reader for PDF) and
sends the command to print the file.
Some applications act a bit strange or do not
support this perfectly. For example Acrobat Reader
version 7 does not install the printto verb into the
Windows shell. If an application like OLfax asks it
to print, it simply opens the document.
Now for each file extension, command line options
can be defined which opionally gets the program path
from the registry and calls the program directly
with command line options to print the file.
printto.inf actually contains two exceptions:
Acrobat Reader is started via the /t command line.
WinWord gets its argument quoted, e.g. "fritz fax
printer" instead of fritz fax printer, because in
Office 2000 the printer name is cut after the first

will be printed without an empty body.

message was encoded in rtf/html, html commands
embedded in RTF, which is about 6 KB of text for
