I have tried the /select switch with no success. The standard outlook folders work okay (/select outlook:inbox) but how does one reference a pst folder?

Thanks in advance,

  • Superuser is probably the more appropriate place. – djhowell Oct 6 '09 at 18:24
  • Enable the Web tool bar.
  • Browse to the folder you wish to start Outlook to
  • Copy the address you see and use that with the /select argument.

So Within my Outlook profile I have a set a PST which has the name PT and a folder named ASDF. The command line I use to start outlook to the ASDF folder is outlook.exe /select outlook:\PF\ASDF.
