I would like to turn off two features in Word 2003:
1.  I don't want every email address I type to turn into a hyperlink.
2.  I don't want to have the email address or hyperlink to open a browser when I click on it.

In Word 2003, Tools, Auto Correct Options, Auto Format As you Type and uncheck "Internet and Network Paths as you type"

I think, if it is already a hyperlink, it will activate, but the option above will prevent it from happening again.
