Editing reply e-mails in Outlook 2003

Quite frequently my employees send me e-mails which I edit and return to them.  In other words, I don't just type a new message at the top, but I add comments and make changes in the body of the message they sent to me.

A couple of weeks ago, I noticed that for some reason, whenever I begin to edit, it automatically enters my name in brackets in the same location I am editing.  I don't know why it is doing this and I am not aware of any settings being changed in either my Outlook 2003 or MS Word 2003 programs.  I have gone through all of the option settings without success to see if I can identify anything to check or uncheck that might change it.  As it is now, I am required to go through the e-mail before sending it, and delete all of the name entries.

If anyone understands what's going on or can tell me how to eliminate it, I would be very grateful.
