Can anyone tell me how to have the preview pane hidden in outlook express.

When I click view...layout.....the option to uncheck preview pane is greyed out and i can not use it

Leave it turned off, if you have it turned on it opens emails for you which if it has a virus in it is all it needs to set it off.

As The Sack points out the Preview Pane option should be disabled; even just clicking on a suspect e-mail to delete it can set off a virus.

With the Preview Pane disabled you can highlight an e-mail and delete using the Delete button at the top of the page.

If you wish to read the contents of the e-mai, first highlight it.

Then click on Properties followed by the Details tab.

You can read the details about the e-mail and then, by clicking on Message Source, read the actual message. Cancel in the normal way and either keep or delete the e-mail as required.
