echo phpinof() in a page
- check the path of catchmail by running
- close the mailcatcher server from web interface
- read mailcatcher help by running

- tried updating to lastest firmware and drivers
- tried different setting in printer properties such as spooling, bidirectional support, rendering, etc.
- change user role
- When the user role is User, the printer dialog box freezes.
- If the user role is Admininstrator, the printer dialog box does not freeze.
- If the user role is Power Users, the printer dialog box does not freeze.

- This will not solve all the freeze cases as there were other causes
- Setting the user role to Power Users may not be feasible in certain cases.
