Every time I start Outlook it loads this slow and ridiculously ugly page called "Outlook Today." I'd like it to just default to my Inbox -- is there a way to do this?

If you go into Tools -> Options, click the Other tab, click Advanced Options, click Browse... where it says "Startup in this folder", you'll get a dialog where you can change the folder Outlook starts in. It's buried quite deep, so here's a picture:

Damn you imageshack for losing my screenshot! – matthews Oct 11 '09 at 16:00

There is also a KB article that gives steps for Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2007. (method 2). This is especially useful for when you place an item in the root of your mailbox by accident.
