Outlook 2016 Edit in Print View

Is it possible to have Oulook 2016 display the mail in a sort of Word fashion, where you clearly see a page.

When you hit ctrl-p, you get a print preview, but you obviously can't edit in there.

I've read somewhere that ctrl-alt-p would put you into a print view where you could edit, but that doesn't seem to work here.

There are no such features for all versions of MS Outlook.

It seems that ctrl+alt+p may have been a shortcut for print preview for Outlook 2007, but it doesn't seem to be available in Outlook 2016.

Extract from Word 2007 shortcuts
Ctrl+Alt+P         Switch to Print Layout view

The operation in MS Outlook 2007 was very different from MS Outlook 2010 onward as there is an option to launch MS Word 2007 as the email editor and within Word 2007, you can press Ctrl+Alt+P to switch to Print Layout view.

I understand this is an old option, but is there any way to maybe make a template that would highlight the "page", so that it looks similar to the print preview or sheet layout in Word?

Sorry. No such option in Outlook 2016.
