I have an email that contains several tables and news articles, etc. I wanted
to collapse the sections into various buttons (or headline labels) so that
users can see the topics first and have the option to click open the button
to expand each section. Does Outlook allow such function and if yes, how to
construct it?

I believe that would require the execution of scripts, like using an
on-click event to unroll hidden text. Most e-mail clients are
configured by default to block any scripts from executing in a received
e-mail for obvious security reasons. For Outlook, the default
Restricted Sites security zone that it uses to render HTML-formatted
e-mails will block the execution of scripts.

Create a web page with your scripts. Then send it as an attachment.
The recipient can view it in their web browser (after saving your
attachment and opening the saved .html file in their web browser).
