Default Prevent highlighted only message from opening


Having an issue with Outlook 2007. Some, not all, yes strange I know, messages that are highlighted only, not clicking on them, automatically open. How can I prevent this?

Do you have your email accounts set to download headers only in Outlook? Also, what protocols are your email addresses using, i.e. POP3, IMAP or MAPI? Are messages that do not open automatically arriving via one sort of protocol (or in particular accounts) and the problem emails via other protocols (or other accounts)?

If you don't know the protocols being used, open Outlook and click Tools - Options, select the Mail Setup tab, then click E-mail Accounts. The protocols in use are listed to the right of each account. Ignore the /SMTP bit, that only has to do with sending, not receiving.

Outlook is set to download full items.

2 accounts are setup. I have attached a screenprint. The main account, simply lists TYPE as Exchange. We have 15 exchange servers in house.
The main account is the one that primarily is the problem child.
