How to start Outlook 2007 minimized?

I was wondering if it is possible to start Outlook '07 minimised, so basically it starts in the tray. I currently have it set to minimise to tray, but it's rather annoying to have to minimise it every time Windows starts.

It's rather odd that Outlook doesn't have a -slient switch or something like that to start it without opening the main window. Every other program I've used at least has a -silent switch or something equivalent to it.

Right-click on Outlook icon, select properties. Choose "minimized" from the "run:" item on the shortcut tab. Done!

Oh wow, I can't believe I didn't think of that!

Many thanks!
