    Folders open

    If I check the option to have the folders with unread mail open, ALL folders
    are opened when I start Windows Mail. If it is unchecked, none of the
    folders are opened. It seems to me that with Outlook Express the open
    option ONLY opened the folders with unread mail. Is this possible in
    Windows Mail?

    Re: Folders open -- OK displayed

    Hi Rex,

    Did you my any chance find a solution to this elsewhere? No one here seems
    able to help us.

    OPEN MAIL TO THE INBOX

    Every time I open Windows mail all folders' display are open. I wish to be
    OPEN to INBOX. How can I do this?

    Thanx

    Tools, Options, uncheck "Automatically display folders with unread
    messages."

    Gary:

    Doesn't work. I've tried it with both.
    What's more frustrating is this is happening in a different user account on
    the same 'puter. On the other user account, it works fine (opens on INBOX).

    Sometimes Windows Mail will exhibit strange behavior, which can be
    caused by running a non-compatible antivirus. Which antivirus are you
    running?
