    What is above and below the reading pane when it is in the middle?
    Better yet give us a screen shot of this problem!

    ok so here at this link you will see the reading pane on the right side and the inbox in the middle
    http://www.hanselman.com/blog/content/binary/Outlook2003ReadingPane.JPG

    So what I want is the reading pane in the middle and the inbox on the right side.
    You can also see in the pic that where it shows the options for the reading pane (right, bottom, off).
    Nothing is there for the reading pane in the middle.

    And this has to be done somehow since all her other folders are set that way except the inbox.

    Your first post states that it is a problem that the reading pane is in the middle and now you are telling us that this is what you want to do and you can not.
    Which is it?

    I was expecting to see the Reading Pane, in the middle, in the screen shot. :confused:

    In the screen shot, what are the two extra buttons next to the Minimize and Maximize buttons?

    I stated the user has the reading pane in the middle.
    This is true for all her folders (deleted,sent,psts,ect) except her inbox.

    And yes I want to put the reading pane in the middle, which I cannot do.

    Can you get a screen shot of this from the person that has their machine set up like this?

    I could but I'd rather call her back with a solution then just there to take a screen shot.
    I saw her screen already and know what I saw.

    I am very confused, as DaveA pointed out earlier, you say this is a problem that needs a solution. But you want to move the Reading Pane to the middle. The problem is not a problem? :confused:

    Please clarify, does the user want their Reading Pane to behave normally? You want to call them with a solution....?
    Or they want to make all their copies of Outlook have their Reading Pane in the middle...you want to call them with that solution?

    Did you find out the purpose of the extra buttons next to the Minimize and Maximize buttons?
    Do I understand this statement correctly: The Reading Pane moves to the Right or Bottom when in the Inbox and then moves to the middle when the other folders are opened?

    Have you registered at Experts-Exchange to see their solution?


    Out of curiosity, I would really like to see a screenshot

    Why is this so hard to understand

    The users Reading Pane for her inbox (not sent, not deleted items) is on the right side and she wants it in the middle like her other folders (sent and deleted items)

    Yes she wants them all to look the same with the Reading Pane in the middle and I can't find that setting to set it that way.

    As far as I know it is NOT possibe to do. That said, the other person may have some "Third party program" that will do this for them.
    Have you asked them how they did it?
