Hi

I just started using entourage. I like it since I was already very comfortable with outlook in windows there really isnt much down time its pretty close.

Anyway my one problem is everytime I open a new email it puts it the new email in the upper left corner of my screen. I would rather it open in the center of my screen since with the 24" its just far away. Its not that I cant read it I just find myself pulling it back into the middle every-time anyway.

Entourage used to open up there to, but after the first time I opened it and closed it while it was in the middle of the screen it stayed there. I am just not sure how to do this with an individual email.

Thanks!

Anyone? - again. I would also like to know if this is possible as it irritates me that I have to drag the email to the centre of the screen every time!

Found an answer below from here: Mactopia Product Forums: Entourage but it didn't work for me. Maybe you'll have more luck!

If you start a new message window, move it to where you want it to be,
close it (saving as draft, then quit entourage it _should_ force
entourage to remember the window position.

However, this does not work reliably. We have never been able to track
down what prevents entourage from remembering window positions properly
(through several versions!)
