does anyone know how to stop emails from opening automatically? I only want

them to show as open if I double click or open them by choice.

Turn off auto-preview. How that's done may depend upon your version of

Outlook. View > Autopreview.

"Show as open" as in the icon showing as read or actually disabling

previewing the emails?

Assuming the first;

Tools-> Options-> tab Advanced-> button Reading Pane...-> disable the first

2 options

The second got covered already by Kathleen and Brian ;-)
