I need help in writing a script for outlook 2003.

This is what i want the script to do for me..

1.) I want the script to run outlook and select a mentioned profile,
2.) Then the script should be able to minimize the outlook window,
3.) After that I need to do send & receive,
4.) And in the last, script should be able to close the outlook properly.

Can anyone help..?

Presently I am using a scripts to run outlook do send and recieve and then close it...
Its working fine the only problem is I am using sendkey(F9) to do send and receive and it only works if outlook window is active.
And plus I want add one more thing, I should also be able to minimize the outlook with this script so that it wont bother other’s when they logon to the computer.

My present Script is

<job id="vbs">
<script language="VBScript">
set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.Run "outlook /profile registration"
WScript.Sleep 20000
WshShell.AppActivate "Outlook"
WScript.Sleep 1000
WshShell.SendKeys "{F9}"
WScript.Sleep 28000
Dim oOL 'As Outlook.Application
Set oOL = GetObject(, "Outlook.Application")
If oOL Is Nothing Then
'no need to do anything, Outlook is not running
'Outlook running
End If
Set oOL = Nothing
