There's nothing wrong with the Outlook application. By default, I don't think it previews audio. I was just hoping there might be a third-party plugin.

If you are running outlook 2007 on a Windows XP machine, then you will need to install a preview handler for Wav or audio files that works with Windows XP.
I havent been able to find any official preview handlers from MS, but I found this 3rd party software instead:

I have tested it and works very well on my computer

Good Luck !!
