Microsoft Word ships with templates designed for exclusive use with WordMail. Each WordMail template contains shortcut-key assignments that have been re-assigned to perform different functions from their comparative default behavior in Word.
The following is a list of shortcut-key assignments that are re-assigned to work with your e-mail editor and their comparative assignments in Word 97.
The default action for the shortcut key within Word is listed under the "Word Template, Normal.dot" column as a comparison to the action that occurs in Microsoft Outlook 97 using WordMail with one of the provided WordMail templates.

NOTE: Character and paragraph formatting (Bold, Italic, Underline, Paragraph alignments, and Font sizes) shortcut-key assignments are the same when used in Microsoft Word using the Normal.dot and in Microsoft Outlook when using the supplied templates, such as Email.dot. For example, CTRL+B will make the current selection bold.

Microsoft Outlook will use is Email.dot as the default template.
