    Disable Preview in win8 mail app?

    Is their a way to disable the preview pane in the Mail app in win8?
    My thinking for this is for security reasons..virus etc.
    I havent upgraded to 8.1 yet still have 8.
    Ive done a search but only come up with preview in file explorer not mail..any help would be great.
