    When opening mail in one of my mail identities, the mail is always
    small - i.e. not maximized - maybe 4" x 4" and I have to double click
    the blue bar or the restore box - the box in the upper right corner
    betw the minimze "-" and the close "x". In the othe identity they
    open large but not maximized - i.e. the restore box having only one
    square instead of the overlapped squares you see when it's maximized.

    I also find Explorer windows opened from links are opening small the
    same way. How do I get it to stop doing this?

    Running XP Media Center SP2.

    Thanks for all input.

    You will have to do this for each different window.

    First, *close all other windows*. Now, grab the corners of the window and
    drag it to full screen size. Close the window using File | Close, or File |
    Exit depending what program you're in. Windows will remember the last screen
    size used the next time you open the program.

  4. The trick in IE/OE is NOT to maximize. That doesn't get remembered.
    You need to drag out a "Normal" window to near maximum size. That gets
