    Removing the Hyperlink partically works. When forwarding an email with hyperlinks in it, I remove the hyper links asw stated above. Save the email, then send it. The recipient recieves the email with the hyper links mapped and active. Why?

      I regularly receive email - from just one person though - that sometimes contains a line or so of blue underlined text, as if it were a hyperlink. She tells me it happens when she goes back into the text to delete something. But we can't work out why it happens. She's using Outlook.
