I am presently using Outlook 2003 with Word 2003 as my email editor.  Somehow, I have attached my name to the spacer bar. Everytime I hit the spacer bar it enters [Lou Dufresne] .

Help, How can i turn this keystroke problem off. I checked the macros and there are none.

Take a look under Tools-Options-Spelling-Autocorrect.  You should be able to fix it there.

Hi slink
If that option is on, and Lou was editing the previous message in a reply, for instance, everything..even a space would insert athe text, probably in blue. See if you can replicate

There is no indication here that it only happens on replies.  I will check it out.

It's not happening.  No matter which of those options I choose it does not automatically display

-> Steve Link

in front of each line typed or display that each time I hit the spacebar.  Am I missing something?  Can you duplicate that problem?

Yes, try again. Make sure the option is checked in tools options, with your name as the text.

Move cursor into sender's text and tap space bar.

The default Microsoft build is to have user's name inserted as a comment. When Lou described his problem, I took a guess that this was what was happening.

Okay.  In the sender's text.  I thought it was supposed to be happening in the normal area above the reply text.  Oh well, you learn something new every day.
