    I copy e-mail into a Word document, write an answer and copy it back into the mail. The mail-and-answer document is saved locally (a strategy that keeps my mailbox always empty). But when I open the document later on, just to look at it, when closing it asks if I want to save the changes, even though I made no change. If I write first into a new Word document, this doesn’t happen, so maybe some flag is set when I first copy the mail into Word. Any idea where this is located and how to unset it? (It kind of acts like Excel that recomputes all the math every time you open a document.) I’m using: Microsoft Word 2002 (10.5815.4219) SP-2 Thank you, Gordon Atteberry [email protected]

    I suspect that is a hyperlink is embedded it may update it when opened, so it's a change?
