A bit of help with Outlook please

A bit of help with Outlook please

Sometime in the dim and distant past I altered the settings in Outlook 2007 so that, when I selected an email in my Inbox, the closed envelope would change to an open envelope after a specified number of seconds. I want to change this setting again but can't see where to. Any ideas?

Many thanks.

Reading Pane

I don't have access to Outlook 2007 but in 2010 you can go to View menu, Reading Pane, Option, tick the option for "Mark items as read when viewed in the Reading Pane" and set the number of seconds before an email get marked as read.

I think this might be under Tools, Options, Other options in Outlook 2007?
