I have an authentic Outlook 2010 with a Microsoft product key, but before that I used a evaluation version.

  1. Now, when I open the Outlook application it tells me to insert the product key again; I try to enter my authentication key and it automatically begins the installation process again, as if I haven't installed it before.

  2. Another problem is on the outlook's start-up screen, the new mail icon doesn't work well and I can't answer emails in this situation. Could someone help me?

I have seen this and the only thing that seemed to work was a complete uninstall and resinstall. In one case, it would not uninstall from Control Panel so it took a bit more.

MS has some help Office Uninstall

Translating the answear to @lui: Eu já tive esse tipo de problema e a única opção que pareceu resolver o problema foi uma completa desinstalação e uma nova instalação. Em determinada situação não foi possível desinstalar pelo Painel de Controle e foi um pouco mais complicado. Voce pode encontrar mais informações no link da resposta acima. – Diogo Feb 29 '12 at 19:24
