Mail icon missing in Control Panel

The mail icon is missing from my Windows XP SP3 32-bit workstation.  I was running Microsoft Office 2010 Std.  When I tried launching the Outlook icon I receive the following error "OLMAPI32.DLL Error".  My workstation is a member of a domain there are no GPO's that are configured to remove this from any of the computers, I'm also a local administrator on my system.

I copied the mlcfg32.cpl from another functioning workstation to my system path "c:\Program Files\Common Files\System\MAPI\1033" (not sure what deleted it from here).  I tried to launch mlcfg32.cpl from START/RUN but nothing happens.  I also downloaded TWEAKUI and tried to re-enable the Mail icon through this tool but the application can not find mlcfg32.cpl.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

I would suggest that the easiest way to resolve this is to do a re-install of Office.

You could also have a look in the add/remove programs section under Windows Components to see if Outlook Express is installed.

If not, install it and then reinstall Outlook.

If this doesn't work, it sounds like some system files have either not been installed properly, or have been damaged (possibly by virus activity).

In this case, I would suggest a repair of the OS.
