How can I prevent Outlook 2003 from highlighting new emails at the top of the
inbox before I manually highlight them? I'd rather the highlight stay on the
email I left it on rather than jumping up and marking a new email as read
(due to preview pane) before I'm ready to read it.
Thank you.

Thanks f or the help, Brian.
I wanted to keep the reading pane so I went and changed the setting
Tools>Options>Other>Reading Pane>"Wait ___ seconds before marking as read"
to 10. That should give me plenty of time to move the highlight to an
already read message if I want to.
