In Outlook Express when I open an unread msg it is displayed in a Minimized window. How do I get it to automatically open in a Maximized window for all msgs I open?

Got this from OE. Maybe it can help.

To change the display of the preview pane

The preview pane lets you view message contents without opening the message in another window. To preview a message, click its title once. To open it in its own window, double-click the title.

You can position the preview pane either below the message list or beside it; you can choose to display or hide the message header; or you can hide the preview pane entirely.

On the View menu, click Layout.
In the Preview Pane area, select the options you want and then click OK.
Note

To resize the preview pane and the message list, point to the divider between them until you see a double arrow, and then drag the divider up or down.

Thank you for your reply to my problem. I tried your suggestion about stretching out the window, after opening a msg & all subsequent opened E-Mails were displayed in this stretched out mode. Thanks again.
