    Reading pane word-wrap problem

    I like reading email in the reading pane, bottom (outlook 2010, win7). All of a sudden, the end of sentences are hidden behind the edge. If I open up the email everything is fine but it negates the whole reason I prefer outlooks reading pane. Is there some way I can get it to fit the text in the reading pane window?
    Thanks

    Have you changed any display settings on the PC?

    Have you resized any of the Outlook panes?

    No, I haven't change anything. It doesn't affect every email equally. I can't see anything in common with the affected emails.

    I just now discovered that if I play with the zoom (-+) thing at the bottom of the right hand corner the text will automatically wrap!

    For future reference, sometimes maximizing your Outlook window will cause the text to fit into the window, meaning it will correctly word wrap.
