Hyperlinks in email message is duplicated

Here's the problem:

I'm using Outlook 2002 (SP2) and try to send a message with an http address in the body of the text.  The people receiving the message see a "converted" form of the link that doesn't work when it is clicked on.  For Example...

Original message looks like this:
blah, blah, blah... http://www.microsoft.com yadda, yadda, yadda

Received message looks like this:
blah, blah, blah... HYPERLINK "http://www.microsoft.com"http://www.microsoft.com yadda, yadda, yadda

This problem occurs whether I send in HTML, RTF, or Plain Text.  Can anyone explain to me why this happens and hopefully a way to fix it?  Any help is greatly appreciated.

Greetings, gpeeters!
  Make sure the receiver is reading in HTML and not text.

Do a repair of Outlook

Have you tried detect and repair going to Help inside Microsoft outlook..

Also make sure or send from a different outlook ( in any form html or RTF or plain) to the same people and make sure if they are receiving correctly or not. This would confirm that your outlook is fine

Performing a repair did not fix the problem.

Also, this problem occurs even if I send a message to myself.

When you put in the hyperlink, did you use the Insert Hyperlink feature?
