This extension must be configured before use. To open the options window, open the Tools menu, select Extensions, and double-click on the extension.
- Override startup folder: Enable this option to override the folder that is displayed on startup.
- Select folder: Select the folder to display at startup from the dropdown menu. To select a folder which has subfolders, open its submenu and select choose this folder.
- Rearrange accounts: Use the listbox and buttons in this section to rearrange the order that accounts are displayed. The Default account is always listed first. Select an account from the listbox and click on one of the buttons below to either set the account as the default, move the account up in the list, or move the account down in the list.
- Email accounts and RSS accounts are always placed above the Local Folders. The Local Folders are always placed above Newsgroup accounts. If the Local Folders or a Newsgroup account is set as the Default account, it will be placed at the top.
NOTE: There is a rule which the order must follow with one exception. The rule is that "Mail" and "News" accounts are listed first, then the "Local Folders" account, and finally "Newsgroup" accounts. The one exception is that the default account is always listed first.
