Hi

I have a very difficult user who never shuts down his outlook, and when he comes in, in the morning, finds out that his Outlook does not work properly.  The solution that I have come up with is to automatically shut down his Outlook for him.  I already have a script to do that (see attached code).  But now he complains that he has to manually open up outlook again, so I was wondering if anyone knew what I can add to allow my code to run, then wait 5 seconds, and then open up outlook again. Any help will be appreciated.
Dim oOL As Outlook.Application
Set oOL = GetObject(, "Outlook.Application")
If oOL Is Nothing Then
    'no need to do anything, Outlook is not running
Else
    'Outlook running
    For i = oOL.Inspectors.count To 1 Step -1
        oOL.Inspectors.Item(i).CurrentItem.Save
        oOL.Inspectors.Item(i).Close True
    Next
    oOL.Session.Logoff
    oOL.Quit
End If
Set oOL = Nothing
