      At the top of the message area, click on the "view" button and near the bottom find "reading pane".  Click on this to turn it on (will put a little check mark in front of it).  You should now see a split screen in your mail area -- the top showing your inbox and the bottom half the preview of any message you click on.

      I've noticed the same thing just within the last couple of days.   The setting I think you are referring to is in Mail Options > General where you can set the time for "mark messages as read."  I'd rather not have my messages marked as read when I preview them, only when I actually open them, so I have had this set to "never" assuming this setting was only in reference to messages that were being viewed in the preview pane (this is how it is in other mail programs).  Everything was working as I expected -- messages were never getting marked as read when previewed, no matter how long they appeared in the preview pane, but when I actually opened a message from my inbox, it would be marked as read...  until a couple of days ago.  All of a sudden messages that I actually opened were no longer being marked as read.  I changed the "mark messages as read" setting to 5 seconds (longest possible interval).  Now my opened mail does get marked as read as it should, however messages are also being marked as read when they appear in the preview pane for more than 5 seconds, which I do not want to happen.

      It does appear that something has changed.
