Insert a heart symbol into your Outlook email message.

Windows keyboard shortcuts allow you to create special characters and symbols that are not commonly available on standard keyboards. One of these symbols is the heart symbol. You can insert the heart anywhere inside your Microsoft Outlook email message, no matter which version of Outlook you are using. The shortcut also works in other programs, such as Notepad and Microsoft Word.
