We have just upgraded to new machines in our office (Windows xp and office 2003) and I cant find anywhere on how to change something or even if its possible. When a link is sent by email outlook automatically inserts in the subject line emailing: in front of the "name" of what you are sending. Is there a way to remove that so nothing is inserted in the subject line automatically? or at least emailing isnt inserted into the subject line? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance :)

"When a link is sent"


Please define "link" or the exact steps you're taking...

In internet explorer...go up to file menu, send link by email (also does the same thing with page by email) then a new email message pops up with that hyperlink or page in the email and the text emailing: is inserted in the subject line.

Well.
Doubtful, you'll find a way to get that outta there.
Do you want me to see if we can manage a macro that, on send, checks the subject line and gets rid of "emailing:"
?

well that sounds like too much work and I am not sure if the users had to push a button (i know one extra step, our users are spoiled) that they would use it but maybe....would you create the macro in outlook?

You could always try:

In IE, Press Alt-D, Ctrl-C (highlight the address, copies to buffer)
Create new e-mail and paste it into the body of text

Not that much extra since you are already needing to use the mouse to go to File / Send / Link by e-mail.
