Outlook 2010 - Is there a way to load into the IMAP folder's inbox directly?

I have a client using MS Outlook 2010. She has two email accounts, a POP3 one that she uses very rarely and an IMAP one that she uses daily.

Despite setting the default email account to the IMAP one, when opening Outlook for the first time, the POP3 mailbox is always selected. Is there a way to force Outlook to start with the IMAP one on opening? Even better, is there a way to open it at a specific folder?

Another option where you don't have to mess with profiles: go to File > Options > Advanced > Outlook start and exit > Browse... and select the account and folder you want to start in.

The multiple profile method won't work as the account need to share the address book. Also, the IMAP account is always used to send emails.

This looks more like. I'l lget the user to test it once she gets back from her vacation.
