Symptom

Outlook has preview pane in every folder and can only be deaktivated individually

Cause

Works as designed

Solution

To switch off the preview pane in MS Outlook generally, do not use the standard icon from startmenu or quick launch pad, but make a link to the executable (e.g. C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOFFICE11OUTLOOK.EXE). Then edit the link (right click on Link --> Properties) and add " /NoPreview" at the end of the target string, save and exit ("OK").

Outlook started by this link won't have a preview pane by default.
