Microsoft Outlook – Reading Pane – Mark as read issue

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.
