Dim objOL As Object
Dim objMail As Object
Set objOL = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set objMail = objOL.CreateItem(olMailItem)

strBody = "Attached, please find a copy of the " &  NameofCompanyBolded & _
" letter for your review, and an electronic version of the Questionnaire.  A paper copy of these documents is also being sent to you." & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
"Please let me know if you have any questions."

objMail.To = strTo
objMail.CC = strCC
objMail.BCC = strBcc
objMail.Subject = strSubject
 
'Display Email
objMail.Display

objMail.body = strBody & objMail.body & vbCrLf & AfterSignatureCCs

Questions:
1) How do I display NameofCompanyBolded bolded?
2)  How do I set the font of the email text to Calibri 11 pt.?

When I use objMail.HTMLbody = "<b>" & text & "</b>" , the text is bolded, but then the carriage returns (vbcrlf) do not work.

FWIW:
 IIRC, Calibri is not a standard font.. Unless the recipient is on a device  with Office installed they may not have the font installed.

I stick to generic fonts that are also smartphone friendly.
