having a problem with Evolution (3.2.2). When Evolution starts, it opens the last folder I've used. How can I set that it should open alwaays the inbox after start? Couldn't find any settings. Thanx in advance.

This page says that you can provide the folder to start with as a command line parameter. So you will have to edit the shortcut you use to start Evolution to point to your folder.
