Hello! Until yesterday, whenever I opened a message in Outlook Expres 6, I had a full screen. Same thing when I created a message.
Now, though, when I open a message I get a minimized screen--I can maximize it, but that's a pain. I've checked Tools, then Options, then looked around at the various tabs but I can't find anything that might solve this minor problem.
I'd appreciate some help from someone who's had a similar problem and managed to fix it.
Thanks!

Try this: Put your cursor on either the top/bottom or either side of the IE6
message screen then click and drag the edge to the size you want.
Then close IE6. When you reopen the program, you should find the screen
at the same size you just set it. And clicking on minimize will still work also.
The only easy day was yesterday.

I received the following via email from mr88oh

I posted a question today, and you answered it. Your suggestion worked! (The message area in my OE was minimized, and I had to click to maximize it.)
Thanks you!

You're welcome.
