Hi,

In Outlook, go to tools > options.
Then on the 'other' tab select the reading pane options.

Make sure the first tick box is checked ie. Mark items as read when viewed in the Reading Pane
and set a waiting time in seconds if desired. If you want them to be marked as read immediately without time delay set this value to 0.
This should remove the new mail icon as soon as the message is displayed in the reading pane.

Hope this helps
