Can anyone tell me how to load the preview pane in code.

I have a friend who has had the preview pane button disabled by the administrator.  Is it possible for me to give her a macro to make the preview pane appear??

Any help greatly appreciated

Preview pane in what application, I am guessing Outlook as this is the most likely one to have been disabled. I would also imagine that this has been done for security reasons to prevent malicious code from running that may be contained in an Email. If this is the case then it is likely that this has been done using system policies or settings in the registry. Either way it would not be something that should be circumvented even if it is possible which I will neither confirm nor deny.

Using this site or any other to attempt to circumvent normal restrictions that are placed on users by their system administrator is not condoned and you should refrain from doing so.

I am not in the habit of sending out malicious emails to people, for starters I would know where to start.

I am asking out of pure curiosity.  I myself am the administrator of our system but have only just taken over the job.  The admin before me has now left and we have no contact details for him.  I can only assume it was him who has made these changes.  We are using W2K and yes the program in question in Outlook.

If you now feel that my explanation is sufficient for you to help me then I would be grateful.  If you do not then sorry for troubling and hopefully another person will advise me.

I can assure you I am not a computer user who would knowingly send any virii/script to another with macilious intent.

Once again thanks for your time.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I wasn't accusing you of sending anything at all malicious, just that the preview pane is a known security risk as malicious scripts can run when previewing mail and disabling such access is a quick method to prevent this.

I am not familiar with outlook / exchange as such so may not be able to help specifically however I would imagine that this is a registry entry which can be set either locally or by system policy. I would imagine if you are using Exchange that this is one of the administrative/configuration options that can be set.
