How do I set Windows Live Mail to go to Inbox when I start it, it always
starts in the folder I was in when I last was in Mail.

I have /mail added to my WLM shortcut and it always opens in the default
account Inbox.

You can also add /news to your WLM shortcut if you want it to go to your
Newsgroups by default. Simple, but I just love this. I use Outlook 2007 for
e-mail and WLM for Newsgroups.

In my shortcut it says target "C:\Program Files\Windows Live\Mail\wlmail.exe"
I put /mail after the exe and it says invalid. How do I add the /mail on to
the end?

Try putting a space after "C:\Program Files\Windows Live\Mail\wlmail.exe"

Then put the /mail

Command parameters must be separated by a space.
