How to kill all running Outlook.exe's via script/batch file

I'm dealing with a computer-illiterate group of end users who sometimes get multiple outlook.exe processes running and break the custom app.  Going into task manager on XP and checking the processes confuses them.  How can I create a file they can run that will close all outlook.exe processes that are open, no matter if there is one of multiple processes?
