Change opening folder

A client wonders if I can control which folder Outlook opens up in. He'd like it to open up on a specific public folder when it starts. Is this something Add-In Express could help with?

Hi Marius,

This is controlled by the user itself, in Outlook 2010 see File | Options | Advanced | Start Outlook in this folder. If you are talking about modifying this programmatically, then the Outlook object model doesn't provide any means for this. But check Manipulate Startup Folder By Changing Registry Setting.
