[XPPro] Outlook Express 6

Click for full size
I have Outlook Express 6 on an old piece of crap PC and when I open an e-mail it opens up minimized(see attached image).
Where do I find the setting to have it opened maximized?

I thought the default behavior was to open like the last window. So maximize that, close it and reopen.

I might be wrong, its been forever since I used express.

edit: I just tried this in Outlook and that seems to be the default way in Outlook, as well as other various programs.

Find Outlook Express in your programs list, RIGHT clk on it, select PROPERTIES, select from the small down arrow in RUN.

Right the email you want to open opens minimized. Just click the Maximize button, the center one in the upper right hand corner.

Then that email will always open maximized.

EDIT:
IIRC there is no setting to open email messages maximized or once you maximize one all other that you open will be maximized.

EDIT 2:
Nope that doesn't work. But what does work is open any email, expand the window to fit the screen, Drag it to expand the window. Then close that email message and reopen. It should open in that expanded window size and all other messages when opened will ope to that expanded size.
