    Sorry for reposting this message but, in addition to the non-display of the PaperClip icon, I later found that message bodies are not being displayed, news or mail. Having said that, if anyone here responds with a fix, please send response to XXXX@XXXXX.COM . Thank you much.
  • 2. Recovering deleted Bulk Mail messages
    I recently switched to DSL for my OE6 on Win98, at which time new Inbox, Sent Items, Deleted Items folders and a Bulk Mail folder appeared at the bottom of my existing folders. All my incoming mail has been going into the Bulk mail folder. This morning all mail in the Bulk Folder disappeared. How can I get these messages back? How do I prevent this from happening again? Please help with details, I'm a novice.

I want to click on a link in an email and have IE open Full Screen

Postby Z2Vpc3RtYW4 » Mon, 19 Sep 2005 08:35:01 GMT

When I receive an email that has a hyperlink, if I click on the link, 
Internet Explorer does not open in Full Screen mode (if I run IE directly, it 
does open full screen). 

Is there a setting or registry key that will change this so that when I 
click on a link inside an email, IE will open in Full Screen mode?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Open such a window to full screen by grabbing the corners and dragging it to 
full size, then immediately close it using the 'x' in the upper right hand 
corner.  Now reopen it and it should remember the last size until such time 
as you again resize it before closing.  Just clicking the maximize button in 
the upper right hand corner does not have the same effect of "remembering" 
the chosen size.

What Jim suggested is the closest you'll get to Full Screen without pressing

1.I.E. 5.5 click link and open a new window

I.E. 5.5 on W2k, is there a way to click a link and have it open a new I.E. 
window by default, without using the right click "open in a new window" 

Doesn't matter to me but a user opened a ticket on it.  After looking around 
it appears that the right click method is the way it's supposed to work.  He 
said it used to work that way, a left click and it would open a new windows.  
This was before the company was taken off Novell and onto AD, and everyone's 
PC was reimaged.  I don't know what version of I.E. he had previously.

4.Over 50 empty IE windows open when I click a link to an email address

The subject box ALMOST says it all.....I have 4 users on my home
computer and this only happens in one of the accounts.

I can link to web pages with no problem but if I link to an email
address the computer freezes for a few minutes and then anything from

This happens if I click a link in Outlook Express or in Mozilla ( my
