You need to create a shortcut for the Outlook.exe file in the MS Office folders under Program Files.  Then copy the shortcut to the Microsoft Office folder in your Start Menu.

There are a few options.

1.  Go to Add/Remove Programs and reinstall Office

2.  Go to C:\program files\Microsoft Office\Office12.  Right click on Outlook and send to Desktop.  Then you would need to make a folder in the start menu and drag the shortcut there.

From the Control Panel -> add/ remove programs
Select Microsoft Office and click on change.
Uninstall the Outlook by not selecting it and reinstall it.
Another way is to locate the outlook.exe and create a shortcut to it and place it on the desktop. You can also put a shortcut in the Programs Folder or better yet; if you always look at the email when you first start the PC, put the shortcut in the Start->Programs->Startup list. This will open the application automagically when you start the PC.

Oh use the drag and drop method to create your Start Menu items by dragging the exe to the start button and to the place in the menu where it will live. Drop it there and waa laaa a shortcut will be created for you.
