There’s a Draw tab in the Message Editor to add ‘ink’ to emails.  Insert a Drawing Canvas then use the standard drawing tools.

According to Microsoft, Outlook 2021/LTSC new features include “Annotate email images or draw in a separate canvas using your finger, pen, or mouse.” however it’s not clear how that’s different from draw in Outlook 2019.
