    Hi,

    I am running Outlook 2010 and would like to find a way of shutting it down at 2am every day so that my backup software can backup the *.pst files. I can easily reload Outlook using Task Scheduler after the backup is complete but can't find any way to automatically close the program.
    I would have just created some vba code to close the program using the Application.OnTime then Application.Quit controls but it appears that Application.OnTime is not a control supported in Outlook (not sure why), if anyone can think of a workaround in vba or some other simple method that would be great...

    Many thanks,

    Richard

    Create a vbs or powershell script and schedule it to run with Windows scheduler.
