    how can I set the default folder when Outlook opens

    When outlook opens it shows the mail group. Under mail are two other groups, personal folders and imap.gmail.com. The program opens with the personal folders expanded and I do not use them. I want the imap group expanded and not the personal folders. Is there a way to pick a specific folder/group that is expanded when Outlook starts? Or can I just delete everything in the personal folders section? I am currently running Outlook 2003, but have 2010 sitting on the shelf waiting to be installed. Windows 7 x64

    Changing the Startup Folder

    I can't tell you how to change the startup folder for Outlook 2003, but for Outlook 2010, the instructions are at:

    http://living-with-outlook-2010.com/...tartup-folder/

    Just follow the instructions you find there, and navigate to the folder you want Outlook 2010 to start in and you're good to go.

    I hope this helps!

    This can be done with the select startup (command line) option when invoking outlook in a shortcut.

    For a list of outlook startup options see: http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/com...p#.ThsFA4KraSo

    I tried to follow this, but it does not apply to Outlook 2003, but I have Office 2010 Pro sitting here waiting to be installed, so it will be useful down the road. Thanks
