thank you for your advice and screen shots. my outlook does not look like the screen shots at all. i do not use microsoft office so maybe my outlook.com is different. i just use the outlook.com for my email that came with windows8. i wish i could find the screen shot locations you sent me but i can't. any other suggestions? should there be something on my outlook screen? in the upper right hand corner of outlook, there is a little gear icon. when i click on that if offers choices such as manage options, manage categoores, manage rules but that's all.

thank you
david
You're using Outlook 2013? You should have File, Options, Advanced. Screenshots are here: http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/choose-outlook-startup-folder/

Ah, if you are using Outlook.com only, your options are different - the screenshots were for outlook, the desktop app that comes with office. As far as i know, there is not a setting to set the start up folder in the mail app, it should always use the inbox. Did you try removing the account and adding it back?
