Something new, when I use "create mail" or "reply" in OE, the page
comes up just a hair off-center such that I can barely click on the
"X" to close in the upper right corner and barely use the scroll bar.
When I attempt to drag the left margin all the way over, it won't
move. It will move to the right, but I can't close the small gap to
the left. All other programs appear centered on screen. I have OE 6,
XP, and an HP laptop, model ze4906us.

As I've just discovered, the problem also occurs when I open a message
from any OE folder.

Hi monreale...Thanks for asking for me!

Both stored and new emails will open with the same window size
and location. To get them to resize and relocate, you only have
to move the window and resize it as desired. You can do this by
clicking to open a new email. Once you have it sized and located
as desired, just close the email and when you next click new or
stored email, it should retain the changes you made. You don't
need to shut down OE to have this happen.

So I'm hearing that you can move one of the window edges and,
barely, reach the X to close the window. And you're also saying
that the left margin can be moved to the right, but not the left.
That's probably because the right margin is, or is almost, off
the screen to the right, and you've reached the maximum width

To re-center the window, you should be able to left-click on
the colored titlebar (the same bar at the top that holds the X,
but click it in the center part of the window, away from the X)
and, holding the left mouse button down, drag it down and to the
left. Then grab the right edge and narrow the width of the window
to your liking, and finish by centering it to your satisfaction.
Then close it and open a new one. It should retain your settings.

If this isn't crystal clear, or if something is preventing you
from following these steps, just let me know, and we'll figure
it out.
