I want to open Outlook when I start my Access database.

I know how to set up the event, but how do I go about opening a session of Outlook so that it is visible, but minimized?

I do not mean this...

' Create the Outlook session.
    Set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")

...as it does not open Outlook so it is visible.

I was thinking of opening it using a macro, but how do I set it to minimized?
