outlook macro's - how

is there anyway to copy macro's from word to outlook 2010, tried and got an error.
the type of macro that i'm talking abput are to switch different font's with a mouse click, size's or set sentences - words that have to be repeated many times (on many different days, so copy clips will not really help me).

You can change the settings to use Word as your default email editor, then you can use the macro's inside word.

don't see such an option, i'm using outlook "2010" beta.
if i understood correctly, outlook 2003 and earlier used theire own format, 2007 & 2010 uses a word as default, but a different template.
i did try to copy my word template, and rename it to the outlook template, but that also did nothing.

thanks.

that's what i understood, my problem is a cannot copy the macro's, or switch the name of my word template (all the macros are there) to a outlook template extension.

thanks anyway.

Outlook 2003 automatically used my Word macros (to get accents for selected keys; when I write in French on the US keyboard). I have not figured out how to do this for Outlook 2010.
