Configuring OE6

I had hopes of configuring OE6 so that when my curser was on an incoming
message it would not open until I 'double clicked' on it. IOW.. lets say a
spam message comes in that I want to delete without opening.. so as not to
send back a message to the sender that I opened it.. How can I delete this
message without it being opened?

I went to Tools | Options | Read and unchecked Automatically open

Thanks,

Go to View|Layout: un-check "show preview pane."

Did that at work this morning. Now I'm at home, OE has no "preview". I
must have been _really_ ****ed lasted night.

Tools | Options | Read | Automatically download message when viewing in the
preview pane.

I must admit that I can't find anything to turn the preview pane off, so this
must be ver 6's answer to security.
