Shallow typing area for e-mails

New Email
When I type my e-mails, I can only type five lines down before the top line starts to disappear, and the more lines I type the more the upper lines hide themselves,
its a nuisance because I have to scroll up to see what I have typed, how can I extend my typing and viewing area.:thanks::thanks:

That depends on what service you're using and whether you're using an offline client like Outlook or Thunderbird (which I doubt, because offline clients display a large compose area usually) or a webmail interface.

Thanks for your response, the service I am using is Hotmail, does this help at all.

Hmm… Sorry, Mel. I have no idea on that one. My hotmail account’s compose screen is fine and I don’t see any draggable area at the bottom corner. Maybe Ray and others would have some ideas.

Hi Mel,

Does your Hotmail / Outlook look like this?

If not, can you post a screen shot?
