Also in Outlook use Paste Special and see if you can paste just the text.
Win 7 does not have clipbrd.exe.  This would allow you to OPEN Clipboard to see its content.

In Win 7, however there are several ways to OPEN Clipboard to see its content

Now you should be able to see what Clipboard has stored .  Normally Clipboard stores only the latest item copied to it and deletes all earlier items.  See what is stored on your Clipboard when you go from Word to Outlook using one of the above procedures.  

However, I see no logic in Clipboard retaining an older image depending on where you want to copy its content.  If nothing else works, you may need to use a third party app.  See "Clipboard Alternatives" in the above reference.
And remember that you have the Snipping Tool in Win 7.

Win 7 has clip.exe, but you cannot use it to OPEN the clipboard using it to see the Clipboard's content.  (Clip.exe, however, uses Control+C (or right click|Copy) just like Clipboard.exe.)
Clip.exe also can do several other tasks )
