No ideas yet, but can you tell more?
- What part of Outlook (calendar, composing an email message, task list)?
- Do you use Word as an email editor, or the native Outlook editor. Does it make a difference if you switch?
- If you copy from Outlook, can you paste into another application (say: Wordpad)?
- If you copy from Wordpad, can you paste into Outlook?

Use the clipboard viewer ( assuming you've got XP) to help you with investigations.

2 ideas.

1. There are well known virus and keyboard loggers that cause this issue. Be sure your machine is clean with scans (google these) EWIDO and HOUSECALL.

2. Change the Email from plain text to html or vice versa and try the paste again.
