Want to start Outlook 2000 minimized

In Outlook 97/98 I was able to start Outlook minimized.  Now, in 2000, no matter what I do it starts in restored state.  I've tried loading it, minimizing it, then closing it.  That previously worked because Outlook loaded in whatever state you left it.  That doesn't seem to be the case in 2000.  Is there a command line switch to force this maybe.  And while we're at it - is there any place where ALL the command line switches are documented?

Command line switches are documented in the OL2K help file under - Control what happens when you start Outlook.

To start Outlook minimized, create a shortcut to the OL executable (Outlook.exe).  Set the shortcut to Run Minimized.  You will need to open OL, minimize and close it.  After this OL should open minimized.

It worked for me.  Outlook continued to open minimized using the shortcut after that, even if I closed OL without minimizing.

I found the switches documented in the OL2K help file as well.  They are just a few, I know there are more.
I did as you said and it didn't work.  Then I thought, hmmm, maybe it has something to do with the fact that I set the option "When I open Outlook" to "Open Outlook Today" instead of the default "Inbox", and what you said then worked.  Strange.
