Windows 7: Windows Live Mail window issues

Windows Live Mail window issues

New to the forum, and hope to find lots of good information here.
Here is my issue that popped up just yesterday. I was in WLM (Windows Live Mail) and clicked on the red x to close a new mail window I had started. When I did that, the main WLM window shrunk to about a 3 inch tall by 5 inch wide window (that has never happened before). I thought nothing of it and re-sized the window, but when I exit WLM and re-open it, the window is back to the small size. A reboot of the system didn't help either.
I did find a similar thread here, but it was that the WLM window would open maximized, and I found that setting, and it's set to "normal window", so that's not the issue, plus mine doesn't open maximized, it opens in a small window.
Does anyone know how I can make WLM keep my re-sized window size?
Let me know if you need anymore information.

Ok, I figured it out.
I played around with the "size" option and that seems to be working. I had to manually re-size the window, rather than just using the pointer to re-size.

It has always been my belief that those who use Windows Mail or Windows Live mail and have it set to show the preview pane, will allow a potential virus to spread .Once you download and have it in the preview pane, it is the same as opening the email.
