    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

  6. Command parameters must be separated by a space.
