Using the ALT keyboard shortcuts sounds like a good solution, but is there a
way for me to know which shortcuts are enabled for the various dialog boxes?
I don't see these documented anywhere.

Assuming they aren't documented, what would be a good way to document them?
A page in the help doesn't seem all that useful.

Two ways I've seen for showing the keyboard shortcuts are:
 - An entry displayed next to a menu item (seems not too applicable in this
case).
 - When holding down the ALT key in Outlook, letters are displayed over the
items (see screen capture below).
