Messages composed in and sent from Microsoft Outlook 2013 don’t have to consist only
of plain text. They can contain diagrams and graphics and can be visually enhanced by a
judicious use of colors, fonts, and backgrounds. For more formal messages, you can attach
a signature that includes your contact information, in addition to graphics such as a
photograph or logo.
You can add visual information to a message, contact record, or other Outlook item to
bring it to your attention or to the attention of the recipient. For example, you can
indicate that a message is of high importance or contains confidential information. You can
also set options that notify you when a recipient reads a message or prevents the
recipient from forwarding or printing a message.

the Screenshot and Screen Clipping tools to capture images of content displayed on your
screen. You’ll create and format graphical representations of business information and data.
