OK, it was not that difficult. There seem to be many solutions. I'm satisfied 
with a simple one, discussed here:
http://superuser.com/questions/71786/can-i-create-a-link-to-a-specific-email-message-in-outlook

It was sufficient to change a line to meet the demands of the new outlook 
version:

 (w32-shell-execute "open" "Path/to/OUTLOOK.EXE" (concat "/select " "outlook:" 
id)
