Cannot preview email in Outlook 2010

For some reason when I have the view set to preview the right side where the preview email is supposed to be is blank....all I have is a list of the emails on the left. Anyone else have this problem?

I have no issues viewing emails either on bottom, right etc.

Use the 'Change View' on the top left, and also also set the 'Reading Pane'

Are you sure you have an email highlighted , not just showing the account.
