Hi lrbrister,

The window size/position appears to be stored in the following registry key:
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Outlook\Message in a value called Frame.  I'd recommend closing Outlook, exporting the registry key, and then delete Frame.  Restart Outlook and try a reply.  The window should open in some default size.
