User had office 2003 installed on his pc. he wanted to run office 2010 side by side so I installed office 2010, leaving all previous versions of software on his pc. After the office 2010 install I saw that the only version of outlook that was on his pc was outlook 2010. I then realized that I did not go into install options and select not to install outlook 2010 How would you go about removing outlook 2010 for outlook 2003? Do I just uninstall office 2010 then reinstall outlook using the office 2003 cd? will I lose any of the settings the user had in outlook 2003? Also will I have to reinstall office 2010 to get back the other office 2010 applications I want to use side by side with office 2003( office, word, etc)?

Well since you already did the upgrade to Outlook 2010, you may have lost 2003 customizations.

Your best bet is to uninstall bothe and then follow this link to install them side-by-side

So if I tried to uninstall office 2010 and reinstall outlook 2003 I would lose all of the customizations (pst file, folder structure) land the users outlook 2003 would look like a fresh install and not the setup he had before I upgraded to office 2010? Currently all office 2010 applications are running side by side with 2003 (except of course outlook 2003) without an issue. The user just prefers oultook 2003 to 2010 because he is familiar with it. I am going to speak to him but I am probably going to leave outlook 2010 on his pc and i am sure over time he will get use to and probably prefer it over outlook 2003.

No you will not lose PST. anyway back up the PST file. However if you converted the PST file format to Outlook 2010....follow these instructions to revert to 2003 format
