I would like to tag messages as READ when I double-click them and read them in a new pane, NOT when I view them in the preview pane.
Where is this setting in 2013?

THANKS!!!!!!! IT was that FRIGGIN "Mark item as read when selection changes"  setting.
I don't know why I couldn't find it.  I'm pretty sure I was able to quickly locate it in Office 2010.
Anyway, thanks.  You solved my problem!!!!!
