As you are probably aware, Thunderbird will auto open on the last selected folder at shutdown.

However, there is an addon which I suggest you take a look at because it now also offers the ability to select a default folder on startup. Manually Sort Folders:

Thanks for your comment. I was hoping to avoid the addon as I seem to get endless problems with many of them. I would have thought Thunderbird would have had the opening folder option in their settings as antique systems like Outlook Express had this option donkeys years ago.

Yes, allegedly there are options - see link below, but I've tried that in recent versions and not got the desired results. http://kb.mozillazine.org/Show_Inbox_when_starting_Thunderbird

Thanks again TH - I tried the usual Moxilla option that you sent but it does not work on my TB version. I might try the addon but the problems is fairly minor so I might just plod on and always try and close TB when in Inbox. Thanks for interest - much appreciated.
