How to keep subfolders expanded on startup of OE6?

I have a user on my network who uses Windows 2000 with Outlook Express 6.
For about a year until about a week ago, she had her folders expanded so
that she could sort them from the inbox by simply drag and drop to a certain
subfolder, but for some reason they collapsed and will not stay expanded
when she opens OE6. Is there some option or registry key I can change to
make OE6 remember the setting of keeping the subfolders expanded when OE6
starts?

I want like
Inbox
---Subfolder1
---Subfolder2
---Subfolder3
Outbox
etc...

Thanks,
Danny

The issue has been with us since the release of OE6.

Thanks! That is exactly what I was looking for. Looks like no way to fix it
without reinstalling SP1.

Just for those that still need help and dont feel like searching, here is
how i fixed it:

Go to the deepest layer of the subfolders and make a dummy folder. (I called
mine xDummy, so it is at the bottom). I then sent myself 2 emails with the
subject of "DO NOT MARK READ" and moved them to that folder. I also went to
Toold | Options and checked the box next to "Automaticallydisplay folders
with unread messeges".

If you would like to permanantly fix this problem, I saw people say that
reinstalling Service Pack 1 will solve it.

Thanks for the responce PA Bear.
