Outlook Quibble

Why can’t outlook remember if/when I printed an email, much like it remembers if/when I’ve forwarded/replied to an email message? The amount of times I print something, only to find that I’ve already printed it, but it got put in the wrong pile of paper, or something etc – if I knew that I’d printed it, I’d think to look harder before printing it again.

Is this the height of laziness? Or desire to conserve paper?
