Yes you can. The only condition is that you only have one version of outlook installed on your computer at a time.

This works with Word 2007, I don't know about 2010 (not installed trial yet) but may be worth a go.
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Word\Options]
"NoReReg"=dword:00000001
The numbers 12.0 will need changing, I think it's 14.0 with Office 2010. Because of this it would be easier/safer/better to manually edit/add the registry entry.

Hi
I have both Office 2007 & 10 installed and both work OK on the same computer, and if you look at the bottom left hand corner of the pop up window that you get when you save a document in word using office 2010 there is a tick box to make office 10 compatible with all systems
