Outlook window de-(half-)maximizes and misplaced after writing answer
Open, NormalPublic

Description

I normally let Outlook occupy the right half of my screen, using the aero feature dragging the window to the right border. When sending an answer, often (but not always, I couldn't find the regularity behind that) the window is reset to its normal size. But in contrast to the regular reset by button it is not placed to the beginning but to the end of the dragging process. So the window is at the right border and more or less invisible. Typically I just drag it again, which lets the window disappear more and more with each written answer.

I noticed it happens after entering the passphrase, and only using the
inline editor to answer.

Thanks for the report. It is always good to have such issues documented.

Yes there is some weirdness when bringing the Outlook window back to front sometimes. I have notices that, too.

To be honest. I have not understood when or why that happens. We use a Windows API function to bring the Outlook window back to front after we are done with our "Encrypting...." overlay. I even thought about storing the geometry of the Outlook Window to restore that, too after encryption, but that seems like an ugly workaround for a problem that should not happen and which we do not understand.
It does not happen for me all the time.

With me it happens all the time: Outlook 2013 x64 is half-maximized at
right border, and GPG asks for the passphrase on sending a mail from the
inline editor, on Windows 7 x64, then it always happens.
