You can continue to use different colors to visually differentiate between original message
content and your responses within a message trail. Or you might prefer to keep things clean
and simple, and always use the same font regardless of whether a message is new—this
simpler approach can help recipients to recognize message content from you.
Clicking the Theme button on the Personal Stationery page opens the Theme Or Stationery
dialog box in which you can specify an email message theme (a preselected set of fonts,
colors, and graphic elements) that Outlook will use when you create messages. Most themes
include a colored or illustrated graphic background that you can include or exclude by
selecting or clearing the Background Image check box.
Email message themes include fonts, colors, page backgrounds, and inline graphic elements.
From the same dialog box, instead of choosing a complete email message theme, you can
choose stationery (think of this as choosing a patterned paper on which to write letters).
Some stationery options have quite pronounced graphic images (dozens of teddy bears
parading across the page), whereas others are more subtle (green bubbles on a green
background). Some stationery options have graphics across the entire page, whereas others
confine the graphics to the left edge of the email “page” and leave a clear space for text and
other email content.
