AppleScript Question

Create new outgoing message with applescript in Microsoft Outlook

I'm trying to create a new outgoing message with Microsoft Outlook 2011 for mac, using

AppleScript
.
The following example worked in
10.6.8
:

tell application "Microsoft Outlook"
set newMessage to make new outgoing message with properties {subject:"Hooray for automation"}
make new recipient at newMessage with properties {email address:{name:"Jim Shank", address:"jim.shank@example.com"}}
open newMessage
end tell


On Lion I'm getting the following error:

Microsoft Outlook got an error: Can’t make class outgoing message.


Does anybody have a clue what went wrong there?

I'm using offline Outlook.

Answer

Apparently, I'm using a trial version, that has expired. With registered version this script works perfectly. Boo Outlook...I spent on looking into this a couple of hours!
