    So for some reason, the only text I can paste into an Outlook email is the word "comparable" which is from an earlier copy. For some reason, everything else I copy in Word won't paste into Outlook. I've been changing a few settings in Word, so that might be the problem. I did set Copy>Paste options back to "keep destination formatting" in terms of pasting between document and applications. I've no idea what the problem is here.

    Thanks.

    By any chance is the unpasteable text marked for deletion using Tracked Changes? I think that's the only time I've seen Word refuse to paste. (Or should I say, it implements the change before pasting.)
