Hello klex and welcome to SevenForums

Go to Control Panel - Default Programs - Set your default programs - Select Microsoft Outlook - Set this program as default.

You could also try Right-Clicking on the file and selecting Open with and then select Choose default program if Word is not in the Recommended programs list. If it is style not there click Browse. Go to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14 and select WINWORD.exe. Now Microsoft Word should be the default for that filetype.
