Outlook Express: Small window when opening message

By rwegman ·
When I open a message in Oulook Express or click New Message, I get a small window to read or write the message in. So I always have to click the maximize window icon to get on.
Is there a way to get OE to open messages in a max window right away?

I had the same problem. Although I was not able to make a maximized screen 'stick', I stretched the screen to take up the full page and then closed OE. When restarting, it should now be the size of the full screen although not maximized.

One possibility is that you are in the preview
pane. Hopefully not, because that is the easiest
way to get a virus, as it will automatically open
an attachment! To check and make sure it isnt the
preview pane....In outlook express, click on "tools" when window opens, click on "layout"
go to preview pane and uncheck it--click apply
and ok.

open it and position the window as you like best.
hold down right CTRL and click the X

Re-open and the window should remember the last position you 'stored'.
