hyperlinks in forwarded Outlook 2003 messages

Recently I have been noticing that whenever I click the Forward button in Outlook 2003, any hyperlinks and/or pictures in the message to be forwarded are replaced by { HYPERLINK "" } and { INCLUDEPICTURE "cid:image001.jpg@__________" \* MERGEFORMATINET } respectively.  Any idea what may be causing that and how to fix it?

    Hi, Steve.

    You must be using Word as your email editor.  I know Word offers a number of features that Outlook's built-in mail editor doesn't, but it also causes a fair number of problems.  This is one of them.  To fix this problem, click Tools->Option, select the View tab, uncheck the "Field codes" box under the "Show" options.

    Better yet, do not use Word as your email editor, Outlook internal editor is perfect for composing emails
