✔ Best Answer
It's not wise to have two versions of Office installed in their entirety at the same time. What you should have done, if you only needed Publisher from Office 2007, is to install Publisher and nothing else from the Office 2007 CD. That way, you would still have only one version of Outlook installed (Outlook 2010).

What you can do now in your situation is uninstall Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010 will automatically become your default email client again.

Go into Control Panel > Programs & Features
Click Microsoft Office 2007 once to highlight it.
Now click "Change" at the top.
The Office 2007 installer will open.
In the new box, click "Add or Remove Features" and click "Next".
In the new box, left-click the little box against "Microsoft Outlook".
Select "Not Available" (red X).
Click "Continue".
Outlook 2007 will now be uninstalled.
Wait for the process to complete.
