I got this mail from one of my colleague Chandra Shekhar Pathak sharing it with you guys, here it goes….

Ever wondered on how to close your Outlook remotely, when you by chance have forgotten to close it before leaving the office. I ended up in this situation couple of times and was badly looking for a way to tackle this problem.

Here I’m with a solution and it works perfectly. It’s a one time setup and you are free of this tension.
Steps To Set

    1. Open Notepad.
    2. Type “tskill outlook” //without the quotes.
    3. Save it as closeoutlook.bat, in a secure location.
    4. In your Outlook, go to Tool -> Rules Wizard -> Client-Side Rules.
    5. Choose “New Rule”.
    6. In the “Rules Wizard” popup, choose “Start from a blank rule”. Leave the default option of “Check message when they arrive”. Click Next.
    7. Tick “with specific words in the subject or body”. Click on “specific words” at the below window and type a text like “kindlyclosemyoutlook”. Click Next.
    8. In the new options pane, tick “start application”. Click on “specific words” at the below window and Choose “closeoutlook.bat” file by browsing. By default it will show only *.exe files. Choose all files to view the batch files. Select that batch file.
    9. Click Next and then Finish.

Once the above setup is done, you can close your outlook anytime by just sending a mail to yourself (Outlook Account) with the text “kindlyclosemyoutlook” in your mail subject or body. Test it and you’ll be amazed to see the beauty of software technology.

 

Enjoy
