When you move from Outlook 2010 to Outlook 2013 or 2016, you will find that in the list of Emails, Outlook has added a 3rd line:
- Start of email body
I wanted to remove that 3rd line as it only takes space and it normally only contains stuff like "Hello John" which adds no real information.
So I thought I could go to the View setting and change
Maximum number of lines in compact mode = 2
But I still saw 3 lines in my email list! It took me quite a while until I found out what to do:
- Go to the View tab
- Choose Message Preview
- Choose Off
Simple, isn't it? Why it took me so long to find that out is that I associated "Message Preview" with the Preview Pane (now called "Reading Pane"), so I never looked in there.
