I've just discovered Quick Parts in Outlook 2013 and was wondering if there is any keyboard shortcut that would bring up the Quick Parts that are available to select.  If not how do I record a macro in Outlook; I'm familiar with creating one in WORD, but it doesn't seem to be the same.  I also looked for a Quick Parts that I could add to the Quick Access toolbar but didn't see it, am I missing something?

I'm not aware of a way to pop up a menu of available quick parts.  You can type out enough of the quick part to make it unique and press F3 to insert the text.  I don't believe there's a way to add an individual Quick Parts selection to the Quick Access toolbar you can add Quick Parts itself to the Quick Access toolbar.  Just right-click Quick Parts and select "Add to Quick Access Toolbar".

Outlook does not have a macro recorder.  In Outlook, macros have to be written in VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) in the Visual Basic editor.  Depending on what it is you want to do, you might also be able to use Quick Steps.  Quick Steps gives you a way to automate common, repetitive tasks without having to write a macro.
