    My Outlook 2003 (running with XP) used to work great but a few months ago it started marking messages as "read" by changing their color in the list from blue to black. I watched this carefully and it seems to happen (sometimes) when I read the message either above or below it but it also seems to happen randomly too. I have missed several important messages because of this and I would love to correct it. Any ideas what is wrong?

    Hi, have to activated the preview pane?
    There is an option that says "mark as read after x seconds"
    If this is not the case I don't know, but this is something I ran into inthe beginning
