I am using SharePoint designer 2010, and need to set up a workflow to function as follow-

When a new item is created in a list, it will generate an email in outlook, but not send (so the email can be modified).

and

When an existing item is modified in a list, it will generate an email in outlook, but not send (so the email can be modified).

  • that functionality doesn't exist in a designer workflow – Eric Alexander Oct 29 '15 at 22:05

The workflow (SharePoint SMTP service) sends the email to Exchange; Outlook has nothing to do with it.

If you want a messaging process where the user can prepare/alter the message you have to built it in a SharePoint List.

  • Make the first workflow create a new (message) item in another List (Messaging).
  • Direct the user to that list (the Edit Form of the created Item)
  • Attach another workflow to this Messaging List which actually sends the email
