WLM does not have a common Inbox for all email accounts
WLM provides a separate Inbox for each email account setup in WLM

Quick Views 'All Inbox' is not an Inbox just a search that displays the contents of all email account Inboxes

To ensure WLM opens to an email account's Inbox, ensure WLM is closed from that same Inbox
- if not, WLM will open to the last used folder

Right-click on the shortcut you use to launch the program and select Properties. Add /mail to the Target, so it reads something like
"C:\Program Files\Windows Live\Mail\wlmail.exe" /mail
There's a single space before the /.

The program should then launch with the inbox of the default mail account active.
