    Startup Today (MSO-sK SR1a)

    How can I set a shortuct that will start Outlook on the "Today" page?

    I know that you can set Outlook to start there, but if you use Nelson Email Organizer (NEO) and then lauch Outlook from in there, "a flaw in the MS Automation Interface (the interface NEO goes through to communicate with Outlook)" (per NEO support) it always goes to the Inbox.

    It sounds as though you have the answer to your question. You can do it if you start Outlook normally, but not through NEO. Are you asking for a way to fix NEO that NEO support does not know about?

    Maybe I guess, 'cept 'cause it's "a flaw in the MS Automation Interface" I thought a "workaround" may have surfaced...

    It's sort of like the registry workaround that was set up to get around the way MS always starts the registry where you left off instead of at the top...

    Waiting for MS sort of like Waiting for Goudeau....

    Even if we knew of a workaround, I'm not sure how we could rewrite the NEO code to use it...

    As usual, I'm way in over my head... I suspect that this one is a bit involved, since they have "one-button access" to the common folders, but *not* the "Outlook Today" folder...

    Oh well... thanks though.
