Do us all a favor, if you are going to waste your time posting something perhaps you shouuld consider posting the actual answer to the question. We all know how to use Google and your worthless response is now what Google returns as the top hit to the question.

In Mail preferences, choose General Tab, select Outlook as default email reader.
In Outlook's preferences, open the General Tab and select Outlook as default mail application.

It's hard to believe that Apple forces you to create a dummy account just to set the mail preferences to another application. It seems like it would have made much more sense to put this in the System Preferences window.

I don't know that you need accounts to set the preferences. Even still, Outlook 2011 has the option setting to make it the default application. You really shouldn't need to do it in Mail. Doing so in outlook changes the default in Mail automatically and changing the setting in Mail changes it in Outlook. Just need to check to make sure it took affect.

Ah, that makes more sense.

You can follow the instructions posted elsewhere in this thread (Mail>Preferences>Set Default) but that does not change which mail application is selected when you use the 'Mail Selected Document' command on the File menu, you will get Mail regardless of the setting, this applies to any Apple application that has an embedded mail command in its File menu.

I did not find a way to change the target application for the "New Email with Attchment" service for files and folders. However, you can follow this instruction here to create ANOTHER service, that will use Outlook: http://www.officeformachelp.com/2010/11/create-a-service-to-attach-files-to-a-ne w-outlook-for-mac-mail-message/
Hope this helps. Sebastian.

In the Preview.app, we know that MAIL is the default email, and it's not possible to send it inside Outlook. I found a way do to it. Just Create a new PDF Queue Printer that point to Outlook. Here is the link with the explanation on how to do it. Very usefull.
