Built-in Microsoft Outlook Email Themes
Plenty of Microsoft Outlook email themes come with MS Outlook when you purchase the Office package. Most of them are based on the MS Word themes already installed on your computer. This is because most Outlook users have MS Word as their default editor for composing and reading emails. Whenever you add or delete a MS Word theme, your MS Outlook is also affected. Let us check out some of the best, built in MS Outlook email themes.
To check the themes installed on your MS Outlook, click Tools and then Options. Select the Mail Format Tab and you get the Stationary and Fonts options. This opens up a list of themes that are built into your MS Outlook. You can preview each theme by clicking on the theme name. Though each theme carries its own fonts, you can change the fonts using the Signatures and Stationary dialog (see image below).
To select a theme from the built in Microsoft email themes, click on the Theme button and select any theme (in the left pane) to preview it (in the right pane). The following image makes the process more clear.
You can further customize the theme by changing the fonts using the previous window that gives you options for selecting themes and fonts for composing new mail, replying etc (Refer to figure 1 above).
The following two are my favorite built-in MS Outlook email themes:
Blends: In case you have not checked this theme, it gives you a blue colored left margin with smaller fonts to offer a cool style to messages. This is a built in theme as shown in figure 2 above.
Glacier: This theme looks more like a paper. It contains horizontal stripes/lines. The left margin is again blue with the remaining portion offering a look of a scratchpad.
Note: You can also download themes from the Templates for MS Outlook.
