How to remove automatically inserted text box in new outlook message?

Hello Experts,

I cannot for the life of me figure this out.  I'm sure it's something simple.  Ever since I installed Office Pro Plus 2010 on my computer and configured my outlook, whenever I send a new email, I automatically have this text box which shows up as a vertical line on the left side of the email window just above my signature.  At first I thought it was a vertical line, but later found out that it is a text box because you can expand it and it shows up as a text box under text box formatting.  How do I get rid of this automatic text box?  I checked my signature and it is not in there anywhere.  When I go into my signature, it does not show up, but when I start a new email, it's there.  It's there in new emails as well as replies.  This thing is so annoying and I can't figure out how to get rid of it.  Please help!
