Apple mail stuck on “Generating Content to Print”

There seems to be a long-standing bug with Apple mail that when you go to print an email message you can get stuck on a window that says “Generating content to print”.

This was fixed on my computer by unselecting the ‘Load remote content in messages’ option under Mail: Preferences: Viewing.

Generating content to print

 

For some reason Apple mail doesn’t seem to be able to print images properly that are loaded from a remote server.

  1. That’s hardly a solution if you actually need to print the remote content. Hard to believe that something as simple as an email with remote images would cause Mail to break. I eventually got around it by using a webmail interface to print my mail, but that’s a sucky solution.
