Quick Preview of E-mails

Sometimes you just need to have a quick preview of an e-mail before deciding whether to open it. Outlook provides a feature called AutoPreview that shows the first few lines of your e-mails.

To enable/change the Preview feature for a particular e-mail folder, such as Inbox, follow next steps:

    1.    On the View tab, in the Current View group, click View Settings:

Current View in Outlook 2010

    2.    On the Advanced View Settings Preview dialog box, select Other Settings...:

Advanced View Settings Preview in Outlook 2010

    3.    On the Other Settings dialog box, under AutoPreview, select option you prefer:

Advanced View Settings Preview in Outlook 2010

For example:

  • Preview all items:
    Preview in Outlook 2010
  • No AutoPreview:
    Preview in Outlook 2010
