Outlook in Start up Menu

    I have pinned Outlook to the start-up menu and although it does come up upon
    starting the computer, Outlook will not work unless I actually go into the
    program to open it and keep it running. So mail and calendar items will not
    work unless I have opened the program. That is a bummer because I would like
    it to start automatically. Is there something I can do to make this happen?
    Thanks for any help or suggestions!

    Hello Brian,

    Thanks for the tip. I appreciate it. I did what you asked me to do and it
    does do the trick. Thanks again!
