        How do you set Outlook so that when you fire it up it automatically opens with Contacts instead of with Inbox?

        IN OK2K:
        Tools/Options/Other/Advanced Options
        and select the folder you want to open on startup

          In OL2K (i.e. Outlook 2000) – for some reason I am unable to edit the pervious post.

            Leif,
            Did you get a message abut not being able to up load different files when tried to edit your reply?
            I have run into this also, was going to post a note for Eileen. Maybe she will see this one.

              Got a reply from Eileen to say it was fixed.
              It’s just sooo embarassing not being able to edit a spelling mistake.
              And then to find your correction had one too…..
