Author: Kelly Last Modified: 2014-07-15

Normally Microsoft Outlook opens the Inbox folder in your default Outlook data file when launching. In some cases, some users need their Calendars or IMAP folders to be opened automatically when Outlook launching. Here I will show you how to configure your Microsoft Outlook’s settings, and let the IMAP/Calendar folder opens by default when Microsoft Outlook starts.
