Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Three ways to create eye-catching emails, part of Outlook 2013 Power Shortcuts.
…There are three ways you can apply formatting to your entire email…message to be able to have it stand out from the crowd or…at least to have it stand out from other messages that you've created.…The first is the use of basic formatting that…you'll find here in the text group on the Message tab.…So, remember that if you want to highlight a section of text.…You can bold it, you can change the color, and so on.…These items are dependent upon a theme.…The fonts also depend on a theme, and you can change themes on the Options tab.…For example, here's what this looks like with Facet,…Integral, Ion, Ion Boardroom, and so on.…
I'm going to simply choose Facet, that looks good.…It changed my fonts.…And it changed my color scheme.…The next option is to actually set a page color in the background.…Remembering that people sometimes like to print their emails.…And that what looks good and fun to you, might be annoying to someone else.…You probably want to choose one of the lighter colors.…I'll just choose this light gold, but it makes the text stand out.…
