How can I hide the to: address when printing from Mail.app

I need to print out emailed receipts for tax purposes, but I would rather not have my email address present in the printout.

"I don't know of a way to do this in Mail, but...

Print the email, but open PDF in Preview instead of printing.
In Preview: Tools > Annotate > Add Rectangle
Drag a rectangle over the text to be removed
Select the rectangle and press Cmd-I to bring up the inspector window
Click the rightmost Annotations Inspector button and change opacity to 100% and colour to white (or whatever suits)
Select File > Print... (do NOT click the Print button at the bottom of the window)

I appreciate this is a bit long winded if you have many emails to print!"
