disable automatic READ in outlook 2010

I use MS Outlook 2010, when I select a message, then go to the next message the previous message becomes "READ". I want the message to stay as "Unread", until I manually mark it as Read.

How can I configure this behavior in MSOutlook 2010 ?

Go into the Reading Page Options and uncheck "Mark Item Read ..." . That is a very likely cause of the emails being marked "read".
