Default how do i keep emails from opening automatically

I have just started using Microsoft Outlook and when I used Outlook Express -
there was an option that you could use so an email didn't open just by
sitting on it - you actually had to open it to mark as read

Can you do this in Microsoft Outlook?

There is something else helpful, there are a list of commands that you can
run from the RUN statement of windows to open your Outlook such as, if you
have a virus clean email and you open your outlook with the preview pane on,
it may hang your outlook. In that case you go to Start, Run and type Outlook
-nopreview, then will open your outlook with the preview pane OFF be default,
you can also run Outlook -safe to open outlook in safe mode. This can be very
helpful when you have corrupt add-ins. My 2 cents....

Strive for Excellence...Hell with that, Strive for Perfection!
