App to save Microsoft Office (Outlook) window state?

I am looking for an application that would allow me to reboot a user's computer, and have it open up all of the same e-mails he had open when it was turned off.  One of my clients is a lawyer who refuses to keep track of what he has to do any way other than to have 100 Outlook windows open, and every now and again the computer reboots for updates and he loses track of his life.

So what I am looking for is an app that will save the state of the office windows (or just Outlook windows) open on the screen, so that you can open them after you reboot.  Something like the Save and Quit in Firefox.  Thanks.

Perhaps of help, though I am not sure it works for Outlook--nor do I believe this function is built into Outlook.

"computer reboots for updates "
This really does not answer your question, but one way to stop that is to have Updates set to "Notify me, but do not download or install".  Then the user is in charge of when to download and install and in that way has control over whether it is a convenient time for a reboot.

This may do the trick, I will try this out and let you know.  If it works the way it says it does, I can instruct the user to run it every time he leaves his desk, so if the PC reboots his programs are there.

While this program seems to work mostly as advertised, I could not get it to re-open the specific e-mails the user had open.  Unfortunately it seems there is nothing out there that will do what I need!  Thank you though, this program might be useful in the future.
