A user was previously able to send a word doc through outlook as an attachment directly from the word 2007 document by clicking the office button>send>email option. Now it is asking to set up an internet e-mail account. How do I get word to reconize the outlook e-mail account.

As jcimarron has hinted upon is that when you tell Word to send the document through e-mail it will launch an e-mail session with your default e-mail application.  For this to work, the default e-mail application needs to be your preferred/configured program - like Outlook.

From Microsoft directly -
