    When I have multiple windows open [i.e. outlook is open with 4 emails open as well] and I hover over the Outlook folder in the toolbar which then shows previews of all the emails, I want the ability to close a single email and keep the others previewed. Right now, if I close one, the other open ones "auto minimize" I know this is an option as I've seen it operated the way I want it.

    Hi Mickey,
    when you close the email in question how do you proceed? Do you right-click and choose close or hit the little red box with the xin the middle?

    I usually use the red square, but based on your question, I did both, with the same result. thanks.

    Have you tried running the repair option on the office disk? If your worried about losing emails just back-up your Outlook files folder found under Documents.
