Disable Preview Pane in Outlook

(may vary slightly by version)

You can change your default view by going to
View-> Arrange By-> Current View-> Define Views…
Here you can edit the default Messages view. Since modifying this view
doesn’t effect the folders you already have modified I recommend defining a
new view and apply that view on first use of the folder.

If you want to only disable the Preview Pane in individual folders, make sure the folder is selected. Go to ‘View’, then ‘Preview Pane’, and choose ‘off’.

    I, like most users, don’t want the preview pane. How do I remove the preview pane view from ALL folders? All of you tech people like to cite this example, but this only applies to the currently selected folder. The moment I switch to another folder that god damn preview pane comes back.
