Hi There,

In Microsoft Outlook, when we select an email, on our right side, the Reading Pane will preview the e-mail content.

Here's my question, is it possible to change the Reading Pane programmatically ?

Best Regards,

Hello Jun,

What would you need to change? It is possible to customize the context menus on it: is this what you are looking for?

Hi Andrei,

Sorry for the confusion.

Correct title but posted wrong question.

The question was supposed to be :

In Microsoft Outlook, Send/ Receive tab, we can choose to only download headers.

When download headers is pressed and we select an email, the Outlook Reading Pane will become yellow and there is a message header up there saying that 'This is a message header. The full item has not been downloaded.'

May I know is it possible to achieve programmatically ?

There is not much details I can find.

Best Regards,
Jun Wei

Hello Jun,

To make Outlook display that header, you can programmatically "click" the button that makes Outlook download headers only. I assume however that you ask a different question. And I don't understand it. What is your end goal?
