Reading emails in Outlook

Posted on 2014-12-04

I am running Outlook 2013 on my Windows 7 computer.  When I click on an email in my Inbox (but don't open it) the message switches to "read".  I don't want messages marked as read until I actually open them.  Is there a setting to change this?

Thanks,

Phil
