A couple questions. Are you trying to open JUST your Outlook inbox? If so, it's probably easiest if you just use outlook instead of trying to link it through messenger. If you are trying to view multiple email inboxes (webmail, work email) then I recommend using Windows Live2011, since that's what it's designed for.

Have you check all of the preferences and settings within messenger? It sounds like it was defaulted to WinLive, and now that you've deleted it, the program needs new instructions.
