    What the *HECK*? (MSO 2003)

    Update:

    I just found that, in a forwarded message, four (or so) down arrows and then a return give the same result.

    CB

    I'm not at ALL clear how, but every time (I THINK) that, if I'm forwarding a message, and I go to the beginning of a line, and then hit backspace twice (to eliminate white space, say), and then hit return, a macro (I guess) activates, and puts in [C.W. Billow - Componentics] -- brackets included.

    I've tried looking everywhere, but then, obviously NOT, and can't find a thing to cause this.

    Any ideas at all on this?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    In XP, I think it's the same in 2003, the setting you are looking for applies only to RTF and HTML message formats, and it is to turn OFF Tools | Options | E-mail Options | checkbox 'Mark my comments with' and markup box. (bottom of the dialog), OK out. The idea is to show edited prior text in message exchanges, but since it marks anything you do to the prior text, it's a nuisance, and I turn it off.
