Outlook 2007 Attachemnts - preview window size

I have an employee who will receive many attachemnts on a single email. When he receives the email the attachments show up in the area right below the subject as usual, but you have to scroll to see them all. Is there any way to change or expand the default size of that attachment "area" so that when he gets a new email ALL of the attachements are in view? There does not seem to be a way to drag the borders of that window - maybe a setting or a registry change somewhere? This is in Outlook 2007 with Exchange Server 2007 (SBS 2008) - client PC is Windows 7 Pro.

This is a bad screen shot as I am using Outlook 2010 rather than 2007 and I had to shrink the window to reproduce the issue - in full screen or in the "preview" pan in Outlook it actually shows up OK. The reason is that there are not enough attachents to duplicate it correctly. For purposes of just illustrating the problem it should work OK.

Anyway, you can see where there are 15 attachemnts (JPG files) and only 12 are visible. The other 3 you have to scroll down to see. What we are trying to accomplish is to NEVER have to scroll to see all the attachments. The issue really amounts to the guy missing the attachments that are not visible. It is very easy to only see the visible attachments and forget to scroll to see the rest. He wants to make sure they are all in plain sight when a new email arrives.

Sorry if I am overexplaining this.

Logically there is no way because the No. of attachments are not limited & windows size is controlled by pixels (resolution).
Lets say: if user have 100 attachments & resolution (1920X1080), so all attachments will apear in maximized window.
if user have200 attachments in same resolution, then you need to change reoslution to higher (buy a better display) to display all, or go back to scroll

you can test same window size in 2 different resolutions displays.
