Windows 7: Outlook 2007: change default new mail folder

Outlook 2007: change default new mail folder

I use outlook 2007 for IMAP Gmail, and I have changed the default startup folder to Gmail inbox. However, whenever I received a new mail notification and I click it on, it goes to the default personal inbox folder. Is there anyway to change this action so when I click on new mail notification, it will bring me to Gmail's inbox instead of personal inbox?

Thanks,
CW.

I had the same problems once and solved it.
Too bad I'm having a senior moment and can't remember how I changed it.
I'm sure someone will step in and help.

BTW, is it me Windows 7 is buggy, the new mail notification doesn't work for both Outlook and Live mail. It was working for outloook yesterday when I install it. After I restarted the computer, it doesn't work anymore. I only get a beep now instead of the new mail notification. I have select to show all notification, but it's not showing either.
