Welcome to JustAnswer.com, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you.
You have several options here. You can purchase a monthly subscription of office, which includes the full Outlook mail program.

The lowest price is 6.99 monthly for office personal.
Or, you could simply use internet explorer to access your verizon mail account at this link
https://webmail.verizon.com
Or, instead of purchasing office or outlook, you could download a free program such as Thunderbird ( from the same company who makes mozilla firefox)
And once thunderbird is installed you could use it instead of windows mail, to access all your email accounts.
You could download thunderbird here.

Personally, if you frequently use office programs such a word, or excel. I think id opt for the office subscription, even annually its rather low cost at 69.99 a year, and the benefit of the subscription is that you can always download the newest version. Meaning, when when office 2015 / 2016 comes out here in a few months, as part of the Office subscription you would be entitled to download the newest version. ( instead of paying outright for an older version, and then having to pay outright again in another few months, and in another 2 years as the new versions are released.)
Another benefit of the subscription. It allows you to download office on up to five different computers tablets or mobile devices, instead of having to pay for each computer separately.
If you would prefer to purchase office outright, you can do so here.
