When in Outlook Express 6, you double click on a message subject to open the message in a popup. For lack of better knowledge, I'm calling that the Read panel. Is it possible to reset the default size of that panel?

I've been all through OE6 Help, and Microsoft's Support site, and found nothing. If you have vision problems, you can increase the size of the font of the message, but with the small size of the popup, even for the shortest message, you have to scroll to be able to read the message. I want the panel to come up max screen size everytime.

Thanks for any assistance!

(operating system is Windows XP Pro.)

Yep, just move your cursor to a corner of an email that you have opened until it turns into a double headed arrow and then press and hold down on your left clicker. Then drag the corners to fit the full screen. It should stay way each time you open an email.

Thanks, Buddy! That worked just perfectly. I guess I was assuming it was more complicated than it was - I had already tried maximizing and closing from there - next open would still be small! Thanks again.
