Outlook preview window

I am using Outlook 97 and I simply cannot manage to get this done:
I want to have a view where the messages lists (one line per message) is shown on the top half of the screen and the content of a selected message on the bottom half. I know this must be possible. Changing the options on View > Current View does not do it ! Now if when i want to see the content of a mail it opens in a new, separate window, which is not what i want !

It was so easy to do in Outlook Express, but not so in Outlook, or....?

Outlook 97 didn't include a Preview Pane addin when it shipped (both Outlook 98 & 2000 do). You can find a couple mentioned here:

MS's pane is OK but the Chilton one is much nicer.

Thanks VinceA, great suggestion and it works fine ! Never knew OL 97 does not include this option.
