Windows 7: Windows Mail Problem

Windows Mail Problem

Hi Guys,

Once again, I want to thank you for the newer, simpler way to get Windows Mail back in Windows 7.
However, sometimes some weird things happen, that I can't figure out. I use a window at the top to hold the 4 newest e-mails, so I have about the largest real estate to view the current e-mail. But sometimes the window resets itself to hold 5, or 6, or 7 e-mails. Also, the files column at the left expands to the right by itself, and takes up more of the screen. Then also, sometimes the font size is HUGE on the screen, which means I have to use a horizontal scroll bar to see all the content. Is there something that could be done to fix these problems, or do I have to just live with them? These things happen about half the time.

Thanks sincerely for any help,

Hi Barry, might I suggest that you post your WindowsMail questions back in the area where you found the Tutorial. I also posted here with my WM question last year & was directed back to the tut & was able to get it all squared away :). The guys that perfected the tut(Slartybart & endeavor) check back there for new posts,not here & they are most helpful.
