    Hope this description is correct.

    I'd like to be able to view a list of my email messages but I'd prefer not
    to actually open the messages unless I double click on them. I've heard
    (right or wrong) that if I actually open a message I might be sending some
    sort of silent message to the spam sender that I've opened it. Also, that I
    might be just that much more liable to virus' in HTML type messages when
    opened.

    That said.. I thought I had this figured out. I went to TOOLS | OPTIONS |
    READ and unchecked "Automatically download message when viewing in the
    Preview Pane" Well.. that doesn't seem to have an effect. When the message
    is highlighted (not double clicked) the message can be read.

    Thanks for your help

    View|Layout: un-check "Show preview pane."
