Hello Kman48185,


Try doing the following.


--Open Outlook

--Go To "View" then "Current View" then "Define Views" and the "Current View Organizer Window Will Display"

--Now highlight the first item in the list (Or Folder in your case)

--On the right-hand side click on "Modify"

--Now click on "Other Settings"

--Look towards the bottom under "Reading Pane" and click in the appropriate "Bubble"

--Click on Ok and Ok

--Now you should be back to the "Current View Organizer Window". Repeat the appropriate steps above for your remaining folders.


Hope this helps.

Well, actually I knew all that.  What I need is apply this to all folders with out having to take steps for each and every folder.  I have 150 or more folders.  I use rules to move incoming emails by client to their folder and do the same for sent emails to same client under client folder..

So your answer while accurate, doesn't help in this case.

One question: Your files are below the inbox?
If they are go to View> Reading Pane and select the mode.
This will apply to all folders below the inbox.

If this is what I understood what you want, it will work
