    IE resizes new email window

    Hi

    IE5.0, Outlook 2000, Windows 98

    In Outlook, I have my new (blank) email window set to a certain size and position. But, when I'm in IE and go File|Send|PageByEmail, a blank email appears with a different size and position.

    This new position applies to all future new emails, so I have to resize it after every use of File|Send|PageByEmail.

    It's been suggested that you guys might have some ideas on how I can stop this happening (because, apparently, prior window states are recorded in the registry).

    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Dale, Did some digging over at microsoft... here's what I came up with, although i'm not sure if they'll apply to you...

    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q269/1/27.ASP>All Programs Open in Same Sized Window: Q269127</A>

    This is all I could find for now... Hope it helps!

    The problem sounds the same as in Q269127, but I don't have the hardware they refer to.

    I've also just tried starting a new email using File|Send, then closing it using Ctrl+Click, but that didn't work either.* (Although, interestingly, it does change the size of future new emails when opened from Outlook!)

    Ah well.
