Ms Office 2010 demo - nasty demo or crap software?

I have installed a trial Office 2010 for a client of mine. She had Office 2007 before. Without questions old Outlook was upgraded and I was told to remote the older version for compatibility issues.
New Outlook 2010 works BUT it is not recognised by any programs in Windows as a default email program. Default Internet programs don't have this outlook even listed, blackberry desktop software, Nokia, PSTSync... all say that there is no Outlook installed. I remove all MS Office bits and bobs and reloaded the trial again... Same story.
For the sake of testing I loaded this trial on my PC that had only had Outlook 2003 and no other office programs. AGAIN none of Outlook sync programs can detect that there is an Outlook in the computer.
Is this just a nasty way to restric Outlook use in trial or is it just another crap-until-patch-released product of MS?
