If you do not have the disk for it anymore, you will need to purchase it again sorry. Without the disk your not going to be able to install it.
you can purchase it here within Office
Click me to open
Else you can purchase the latest version of office with outlook here
Click me to open
But if you only used outlook for basic tasks then you can get windows live mail which is a lite version of outlook and is free and you can download and install that from my link below (its part of the windows live essentials pack).

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

I have the 2010 office disc but it doesn't include Outlook.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
ok, then you have the basic, I am not sure where you originally got it from, but you will need to use one of the three solutions I offered in order to get outlook onto the computer.

Even though I have Outlook on my PC?
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
yes as you have nothing to install Outlook from.
You need the installation disk in order to install Office on the computer.

Ah, I see.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Its all about having the installation in order to add it, but as I mentioned, if you only use Outlook lightly I would go with the third option I gave which is free.
And just to note, having Outlook installed without a disk is actually pirating the software... I am only saying this to let you know as you always need the disk to show proof of ownership.
