Hello, I am looking for a way to highlight specific words  such as "keyboard", "mouse", or "monitor" in an Outlook 2010 email with the html format. Outlook has a Find and Replace feature that searches and can highlight one word at a time, but is not practical as it would be just as quick to scan down the page. It may be possible to do this with a macro but the negative side of that, is that a macro can easily stop working when Outlook gets updated to a new version.

The highlighting would make it much easier and faster to determine the items that had been ordered on an invoice. Additional features would be to have the app return the number of times each word appears or perhaps if the word "monitor" was found, it would return say 10 characters to the left of it which would contain the model of the monitor.

The feature would work similar to the search feature on this forum where I searched for the phrase "highlight specific words" and the returned results shows those specific words highlighted as seen in the attached screenshot.
