Hi,

We have Outlook 2010 open on 1 pc that is normally unattended. Is there any way that Outlook can be restarted automatically, as sometimes it shuts itself down?

Many thanks

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.  We need outlook to be running 24/7, but sometimes it shuts itself down and does not restart.  Is there a way to do this?
Thanks

Create a schedule tast to run the following script at intervals.
save it as a .vbs script.
Const olFolderInbox = 6

strComputer = "."

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
    ("Select * From Win32_Process Where Name = 'outlook'")

If colItems.Count = 0 Then
    Set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    Set objNamespace = objOutlook.GetNamespace("MAPI")
    objNamespace.Logon "Default Outlook Profile",, False, True    
    Set objFolder = objNamespace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)
    objFolder.Display
End If

Open in new window

First you have to find out why outlook shuts itself down. This is not normal behavior

- Have you checked the disk for errors?

-Possible the pst file is corrupted
Use the PST Scan Tool to fix the PST file
