guess what i'm doing... i'm answering my own question... imagine 
that... can you tell i sent too soon in my google hunt?  and stef, 
good idea (your message hasn't gotten to me, i saw it in the 
archives), but sadly that ain't it...

and sadly, it doesn't look like i can get around this problem with 
code (yet), and i don't like having to tell users to upgrade...



HTML Messages with Pictures Do Not Print Correctly After You 
Install Internet Explorer 5.5 SP1 or 6.0

When you print a HTML message with pictures from the Internet in 
Microsoft Outlook 2000, the pictures may not print correctly or may 
not print at all. This issue typically occurs after you install Internet 
Explorer version 5.5 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or Internet Explorer 
version 6.0.

To resolve this issue, obtain the latest service pack for Internet 
Explorer 6.0. If you are running Internet Explorer 5.5, obtain and 
install the following hotfix.

Note You will also need the supported fix for Outlook 2000.
