Hi,

it is possible to do it by sending an HTML Text

Sub CreateHTMLMail()
'Creates a new e-mail item and modifies its properties.

    Dim olApp As Outlook.Application
    Dim objMail As Outlook.MailItem
    Set olApp = Outlook.Application
    'Create e-mail item
    Set objMail = olApp.CreateItem(olMailItem)

    With objMail
       'Set body format to HTML
       .BodyFormat = olFormatHTML
       .HTMLBody = "<HTML><BODY>Enter the <b>message</b> text here. </BODY></HTML>"
       .Display
    End With
End Sub
