Entourage opens new blank email on start up!

Hi There

Whenever I start up Entourage I get an annoying new window which is a blank new email. I have no idea how to get rid of this. I just want it to go to my inbox without me having to close the 'new email window' down.

Any help will be gratefully appreciated.

I am running Office 2008 for Mac with Mavericks.

Hi, user: nacinla provided a work-around in this thread:


"...When I launched Entourage from the Applications folder, not the Dock, Entourage opens without opening a new, blank email.

I went a step further and created an Entourage alias in the Applications folder and dragged it to the desktop. 

I launched Entourage from that alias, it opened ... without opening a new email.

It appears to be a Dock issue. Would be nice if Microsoft and Apple got together and resolved this, but I'm not holding out hope.

I didn't have this problem before I downloaded Mavericks, which I have found to be buggy. Response times are slower. And sometimes my menu bar goes transparent the Apple icon disappears from view, though it's there if you hover and click."
