If a question is closed but then later the edited, how do you go about re-opening it?

I came across Unable to open Outlook 2010 on Windows 7 in one of the review queues. Originally, the question was basically just "Outlook won't open". So I posted a comment asking for more details. The asker responded, but not before his question was closed as "Unclear what you're asking for".

I edited his question to include the information, but I can't go about answering it because it's closed. What's the process getting questions back up for a re-open review? Not just for this question, but closed questions in general?

Editing should do the trick, it'll get in the queue. In theory you can flag it for mod attention, but looking at the question as it is, I'm kind of ambivalent over its fate. Googling suggests a few things but as it is, we don't know what she's thrown at a wall and has stuck.

    Granted. It's certainly not a stellar question. But it is a legitimate question; one which might be difficult for an unsophisticated user to know how to phrase in a Google query.
