I have an Officejet Pro 8600
When I print out an email (not a document, the email itself) from my iphone 6, the printer prints out the email in miniature just in the corner of the page. Literally the text is about 3pts big! Ridiculous!
This also happens on my sons iphone 6S, but not on my Mum's 6+, except she was running iOS 10. Now she's downloaded iOS 11, same issue. Was fine on mine before the new OS too.
I just spent 2 hrs on the phone to Apple and they can't fix it, they say HP need to fix it. Anyone else got the same thing going on and found a way around it?
I can't use the HP app to print as when you are in an email it won't link to it, you have to use Air Print, and it just won't work when it did fine before.
For those who are going to ask the click list is as follows;
Arrow - which gives choices 'Reply, Reply All, Forward, Print
Click Print - takes you to screen with 'Printer (choose printer), Copy (choose number of copies), OPtions (only choices are pages, double sided and B&W)
Click Print top RHS and it prints....but in miniature!!!
Again for those who will tell me to try it, you cannot print from the Smart App, because it only allows you to print documents, not emails.
Thanks in advance x

Welcome to the HP Forums. I would be happy to help you with your HP Officejet Pro 8600 Printer. I understand that it prints in miniature when you print using Airprint and you have already done some preliminary troubleshooting.
Don't worry though as I have a few steps to determine the issue and find a solution as well.
AirPrint does not have the option to change the paper size. However, Your printer has a paper sensor, AirPrint automatically adjusts the print size to the detected paper. Your printer has a control panel with the option to change paper sizes, you can change the paper size and the Apple iOS device detects the new paper through AirPrint, and then scales the printout accordingly.
Click here and refer page no:18 in the user guides to access the control panel settings.
If the paper size selected and the paper size loaded are not the same, an error might display on both the printer and device, asking for confirmation that the correct paper is loaded. If the incorrect paper size is loaded, the Apple iOS device scales the printout to the paper size selected on the printer.
Figure : Paper size displayed on Apple iOS device
If that does not fix the issue, update the printer firmware.
Click here and refer the document to update the printer firmware.
Let me know if that helps.

This issue has been reported and we are looking into what changed in iOS 11 to cause this.
In another thread users have reported that Disabling IPv6 on the printer and then re-selecting the printer in AirPrint will work around the problem.
Find the IP address of the printer. If you have a display on your printer, select the wireless connection and the IP address should be displayed. You may also be able to print out a configuration report that should have the IP address.
On any browser (such as Explorer) type that IP address into the address bar. That should take you to the printer settings. (if you use safari on an iOS device it will warn you about certificates, just click through accepting them)
Once at the settings, select the Network tab, then general option, then network protocols. That should give you the option to that Select IP4 only.
Save and exit. You will probably have to reboot your printer

Late to the conversation, but IronBadger's IP worked for me.
My HP M252dw had defaulted to "envelope" (US #10) as the default paper size for all printing from the iOS devices in the house. I set the default to standard paper size (US 8.5 x 11) and haven't had the issue pop back up.
Many thanks; this has been aggravating many throughout the house.
