Hi tulsachapter,

Select Tools|Options from the menu, and select the Other tab.  Click Advanced Options, and select the startup
folder you want.

what are you getting instead?  Are you getting the Outlook Today screen?  If so there is an option at the top right that should say "Customize Outlook Today..."  In there there is a check box you can remove that says "When starting, go directly to Outlook Today."  Check this off.  If you have Outlook 2000 the check box may be at the bottom of the Outlook Today page.

If this is not what you are even seeing please explain.
