Outlook 2007 Question

While working in Microsoft Word 2007, a memo is created with straight connector line. As a new e-mail message in Outlook 2007 is composed, the information from the Microsoft Word Document is copied and pasted it into the body of the e-mail. Once the recipient receives and opens the e-mail in Outlook 2007, a gradient blue line appears in the e-mail message. The more the user forwards the e-mail, the more and bigger blue gradient lines appear. The straight line connected has been removed as a test and the e-mail has been resent with the same gradient blue line displaying.  Is there a fix to prevent the gradient blue line from displaying in e-mail messages that are sent or forwarded? I appreciate any feedback.
