How to make reply windows default open as minimized?

Anyone know how to make the message window open in minimized layout when I click to reply to a message. Currently, every time I click to reply to a message the reply window opens to fill my screen. It's irritating! I can minimize the open window but when I go to reply to a new message it goes right back to full screen. Please help.

primeradmin,

What version of Outlook?  Do you get the same result if you write a New Message?

Try open a reply but then close it with the X in the top, right of the window.  Don't worry about saving but see if that will "set" the window size for you.

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

Hello primeradmin,

Open a reply window.  Unmaximize it. Drag it to size you want. Close the window while holding the Control or Shift key. It should remember the new size.

Hope this helps!

You have Word set as your editor.  Since you normally maximize Word, the reply window will also open full screen.  This is a characteristic of older Outlook versions that use Word as the editor.  Go into the Outlook options and Deselect 'Use Word for edit e-mail messages' --- or some variation of that depending on your version.

Well that worked, but I'd sure like to be able to keep the WORD setting. Anybody know how to keep the editor setting AND be able to default the windows to opening as minimized I'll giv'em 500 points.
