Understanding the Reading Pane

When you first log in, the default view is set to the Mail component of the OWA. This component features a message list and has a Reading Pane which allows you to view your e-mail messages without opening a separate window. 

  1. To change the location of the reading pane, click the View command from the Outlook Web App toolbar. A dropdown menu will appear.
  2. Under the Reading Pane component, select Right, Bottom or Off. The change will take place immediately.

*If you select Off as an option, you will have to double-click on a message to view it. The message will appear in a new window
