Apply themes and styles
You can change the appearance of the text in a message by applying either local
formatting (character or paragraph attributes and styles that you apply directly to text) or
global formatting (a theme that you apply to the entire document) in the same way that
you would when working in a Word document or PowerPoint presentation.
Tip You can set a default theme for new email messages from the Personal Stationery
page of the Signatures And Stationery dialog box. For information, see section 1.1,
“Customize Outlook settings.”
Nine of the standard Microsoft Office 2013 themes (which are not the same as the email
message themes you can select in the Theme Or Stationery dialog box) are available
from the Themes gallery on the Options tab in a message composition window. Each
theme controls the colors, fonts, and graphic effects used in the message.
