New Message Dialog Box

Posted on 2002-03-07
Last Modified: 2011-09-20
This is an annoying problem that has just started.  Using Windows 2000, Office 2000 - SP2

When you click New Message - the dialog box for New Message appears smaller than the screen (not full screen but not minimized on toolbar).  You click the maximize button on dialog and it maximizes.   Then when you go to type your next message - it again is not maximized.  

I went through options etc and can't find where Outlook can reset the New Message box to open maximized each time.

Any ideas?

After I submitted question I slapped my head and went "ah duh" - of course that's the answer.  Sometimes you know you just forget the obvious stuff.  Thanks.
