Outlook Autopreview

by

You know that view in Outlook where all emails have about 3 lines of the email content below the subject etc so you can scan them without having to open them? Well I had a client that wanted that for ALL emails not just unread ones. Turns out that this is the way to do that;

AutoPreview

Using AutoPreview, you can read the first three lines of messages from the main Outlook window without opening them.

To turn AutoPreview on, from the View menu, select AutoPreview. These same steps will turn it off if it’s on.

To preview the first three lines of unread messages only, follow the appropriate steps below.

Outlook 2007

  1. From the View menu, select Current View, and then click Customize Current View.
  2. Click Other Settings, and then click Preview unread items.
  3. Click OK, and then, to close the View Summary window, click OK again.

Outlook 2003

  1. From the View menu, select Arrange By.
  2. Select Current View, and then click Customize Current View.
  3. Click Other Settings, and then click Preview unread items.
  4. Click OK, and then, to close the View Summary window, click OK again.

  1. From the View menu, select Current View, and then Customize Current View... .
  2. Click Other Settings... , and then click Preview unread items.
  3. Click OK, and then, to close the View Summary window, click OK again.

In order to fully give credit where credit is due, I found this gem from the Indiana University Knowledge Base site, here – http://kb.iu.edu/data/ajwz.html
