Automatic follow up when sending mail with outlook 2003

When one of my colleague sends mails, they always appear in red in the recipents mailbox.
I went to his computer and tried to click on the follow up button on the toolbar (the flag). I clicked on the clear flag and the mail appeared in black in my mailbox when sent.

So I guess the mail are always sent with a follow up flag, but I couldn't find where to change that option in outlook.

I'd like to know how to stop that behaviour in outlook 2003.

thanks!
