I just recently started using IMAP. I always set Outlook to minimize to the system tray (hide when minimized). One problem I have been running into is that when I double-click the envelope icon (new mail) Outlook opens to the "Outlook Data File" instead of my IMAP inbox.

I found a 4 year old thread on Microsoft's forums discussing this but the MVP community moderator seems to think the thread ended since the bug hasn't been fixed...

Any workarounds or suggestions? I'm thinking about returning to POP because of all the IMAP annoyances I'm running into, despite liking that it allows me to see sent mail from multiple devices.
