You want to just open and close outlook both at a specific time right.. do you also want the script to do the backup work ??
If you want to start and close outlook then make sure what path your outlook.exe file is

I need the ability to write a script maybe .vbs or bat that I can load on many computers that will close the appropriate outlook version.  My backup software will allow me to have pre backup scrits run and post backup scripts i guess the best way is to use .bat or .vbs...not sure were to start though...
Please check the link in my previous suggestion.. That should give you a good start.. post back ..
