Lost the use of the preview pane in Eudora 7

I have no clue what has happened. I came back from lunch and my email preview pane no longer displays my messages. I can get to them by double clicking the messages but what a pain.
I have already tried the settings in tools to no avail.
Has anyone got some advice on how to fix this.

Is the preview pane missing altogether, or is it just blank?

Just to be sure, make sure the preview pane is not just reduced to a very small size - move the mouse over the lower edge and try resizing.

Might pay to double check in settings -> Viewing Mail that the preview pane is enabled.

Is this Mac or PC?

Is this a problem in all mailboxes or just the Inbox?

this is a PC that I have the problem on.

The view pane is checked

The pane is visible but empty

The problem is in all mailboxes
Greetings, mackeyrj !

The problem could be due to a new security update to not show message in Preview Pane by default.  You need to turn it on. In Tools > Options > Viewing mail.  Check "Show message preview pane".

Best wishes!
