Thank you for not including the one thing that isn't obvious: nesting bullet points

Actually "Insert Bullet" is a misnomer. What Outlook does is to Insert the "Bullet Style". This means it will add a bullet, but also change the entire style, giving you indents, font resizing, paragraph formatting and a lot of things that you may not want. So if all you want is a bullet on top of a nice style you already have, tough.
