Outlook 2010 Reduce Preview Pane Clutter

Hello,

I have Outlook 2010 and have positioned the preview pane below my emails. However about half of the space of the preview pane is taken up by a rehash of the email author and date.

Is it possible to customise the preview pane so it just shows the message, rather than the extra rehashed information?

Cheers.

Look in the Preview Pane of any email. On the right side near the bottom, you can collapse the people pane to just a row.  You can also turn it off (Ribbon, View, People Pane options). This creates space in the pane.

But you cannot turn off the "From" and "Subject" so far as I know.

I minimize People and maximize the pane area (fewer email lines and 1 line per email). This helps a great deal.

Ok. If you can't turn off the From and Subject, then that's a bummer - as they take up a huge amount of realestate.
