Strings by themselves don't contain any formatting - they're just a collection of characters. Whether you can add formatting to your email depends on the type of email you're creating. So if it's a plain text email, there's nothing you can do. If you're creating an HTML email then you can add HTML formatting (so you can put <b> tags around the text in question). This is going to be determined by how the email is getting sent, which isn't part of the code you're showing.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
