I purchased a new computer using Windows 7 and to my dismay it did not come with MS Outlook. Since I have already purchased the Office 2007 for my laptop, can I install just the Outlook 2007 to use with the already purchased and installed Office 2010? I do not want to purchase the MS Outlook 2010 when I have MS Outlook 2007 along with the entire package of Microsoft Office Professional 2007. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

As far as I'm aware, you can install multiple Office/Outlook versions on your computer.

So, the best is to just try it as it should work if you don't use the previous license anymore.

Agreed. You should be able to do a custom install and choose which items to install. Basically, deselect everything but Outlook. – CharlieRB Jan 6 '12 at 21:00
