Outlook: Change the Reading Pane Layout

One thing that has always confused me is why Microsoft continues to have the reading pane in Outlook set to appear on the right side of the screen by default. Almost everyone I know prefers it to be on the bottom. Changing the layout is actually the first thing I do when I'm configuring Outlook on a new computer.

While you're in the Mail area of Outlook, go to the 'View' tab. Click the 'Reading Pane' button in the 'Layout' group. Here, you have three options: Right, Bottom, and Off. I like to choose 'Bottom'. It's up to you, though!
