In Outlook 2010 you can sent up a Theme by going through the menu items: File / Options / Mail / Stationery and Fonts / Themes. You can also create your own theme files and have them accessible from this same location.

My question is, can you choose one of those themes when creating a new email message, using some combination of keyboard shortcuts perhaps? I notice that from within a new email message, on the Options Tab, you can select Themes, but these seem to be different from the Themes referenced above, which is a bit confusing. Can anyone point me to any good reference material on the difference between these two types of Themes and (perhaps) how to access, or turn them on, by using keyboard shortcuts?
