All incoming emails have signatures with tags next to the person's name, the city, the county etc. What are these tags and how can they be turned off? See the attached screen shot for further information.

Could it be this ?

If so, try the above, or try turning off the "display online status next to persons name" option in outlook.

Those aren't Smart Tags.  Smart Tags are indicated by a dotted purple line under a word.  Those aren't presence indicators either.  They appear as small colored circles indicating a user's status (e.g. available, in a meeting, etc.)  I'm wondering if they are graphics the person put in their signature?  Can't tell from the picture, I'd have to have access to one of the messages to know for sure.

Yeah, they dont look like smart tags that i know of, but the do have the same name as standard smarttags. PERSONNAME is the name of a smart tag which will link the name to a contact item if you have it.

If it helps, these tags have only appeared since we linked Outlook to a Blackberry.

I don't have a Blackberry, so can't tell if it's responsible or not.  Whatever those "tags" are, I don't believe Outlook put them there.  It may be something from the Blackberry or some other 3rd-party something.  Of course stonneway may be right and they are Smart Tags that have been modified to change the way they appear.  If the messages are in HTML format, then look at the code surrounding the text where one of those appears.  That should tell us what it is.

Thank you. Turning off "Smart Tags" removed these.
