Outlook 2000. Showing unread messages in bold.

  murgle 19:26 07 Aug 2005


Some time ago I set up outlook to show messages as read after previewing them for so many seconds. How do I reverse this as I have forgotten where the setting are.

I want to change the settings so that emails show as unread until they are opened.

Tools->Options->Read and change the value for the "Make messages as read after........seconds"

That's Outlook Express isn't it?

in Outlook 2003

On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Other tab.

Click Reading Pane.

Select the Mark items as read when viewed in the Reading Pane check box, and then type a number in the Wait n seconds before marking item as read box.

It should be similar in 2000.

Yes it is.... Just re-read murgle's opening post, and he/she doesn't mention if it is OutLook Express, just "OutLook 200"....

My mistake.... lol

Sorry, its outlook 2002 I have, not 2000.
