If like me, you like having your reading pane on to preview your messages but don’t want to ‘mark as read’ when you click off the message, you can change a setting to stop it from happening…simples
- Tools > Options
- Click the ‘Other’ tab
- Click Reading Pane…
- Make sure the ‘Mark item as read when selection changes’ tick box is unticked.
- Click OK
- Click OK
You should now be a move away from the message without any settings changing.
For months now I have been driven insane by my Outlook…for some reason the Reading Pane had decided to give up the ghost, for no apparent reason whatsoever. I kept looking in the ‘Customise Current View’ section of my inbox, but there is was, still set to ‘Bottom’. Very frustrating. So I decided to search for a solution.
Hidden away in the Help of Outlook is a section called ‘Disabled Items’, and there is was sitting there, as if looking at me in a cheeky way…I selected it, clicked ‘Enable’ & ‘Close’, restarted Outlook, and, hey presto, my Reading Pane was back.
