What event happens when you open 2 copies of your inbox?

Love this forum!

This if for when I open a second copy of the inbox via

outlook.exe /select outlook:inbox

I'm trying to identify what event(s) fire off - perhaps analogous to "App_NewWorkbook" in Excel.

(One reason for having multiple inboxes at once is to do different searches simultaneously.)
You can right click on a folder and choose open in new window instead.

I'm not sure if application startup is triggered by that command line if its already running, but AFAIK, its the only start up event you can trap.
Sounds like Ken and Sue territory! It at first looked heavy, involving class code as shown in NewExplorer Event*[Outlook 2007 Developer Reference] and shown below. But thanks to a Sue post (OutlookCode.com :: Initializing Event Handlers), simply placing all this in ThisOutlookSession, not a separate class module, works like a charm. Thanks to you for getting me there Diane, and Sue for yet another of a million great solutions!
Public WithEvents myOlExplorers As Outlook.Explorers 
Private Sub Application_Startup()
   Call Initialize_handler 
End Sub 
Public Sub Initialize_handler()
   Set myOlExplorers = Application.Explorers 
End Sub 
Private Sub myOlExplorers_NewExplorer(ByVal Explorer As Outlook.Explorer)
   If TypeName(Application.ActiveExplorer) <> "Nothing" Then
       Application.ActiveExplorer.WindowState = olMinimized
   End If 
End Sub
Yes, it is their teritory... although Sue has retired from everything Outlook - and to make sure she stays retired, she switched to Mac so she wouldn't be tempted. Another great dev, Michael Bauer, answered my query.
