Outlook 2019 VBA run-time error 424

I have a very small and simple macro in VBA that was created in MS-Word, where it works fine, that I would also like to run in Outlook 2019, but unlike in Word, here it 'crashes' immediately with run-time error 424.

The code is:

Sub SuperScript()
With Selection.Font
.Name = "+Body"
.Size = 11
.SuperScript = True
End With
End Sub

It seems that Word VBA code does not run in Outlook (who knows why), but not being a programmer, I have no idea how to modify it to run in Outlook.

I would be very grateful for some help with this very small task.

Regards
