Outlook Missing from Default Prorams List

I am running XP Pro with Office 2010.  I got a MAPI error when I attempted to send email from a MS word Doc by using the send this doc as an attachment option inside Word.

Seen that part before so I opened internet explorer and went to tools, internet options and  the programs tab to choose outlook as the default email client and it wasnt in the list.

Then I went to add and remove programs and under the set default programs and access it wasn't there either.

Any ideas how I get that set to where outlook is in the list of default programs?

Thanks spec.  This article nailed it.  I proved it on the three machines that were having the trouble and all three worked great.

Thanks,
