Do you have Word? If so I would either compose a message in word and then send that as an attachment. The recipient, who must also have Word of course will find it easier to save the document to their hard disk and it will be easier for printing without all the e-mail headers etc.
The alternative is if you have Outlook installed on your machine as well as Outlook Express. Set up your e-mail account in Outlook and in tools options set Word to be your default e-mail text editor. Whenever you then send a new e-mail Word will open and you carry on as above.
