How to remove hyperlinks of Outlook 2007

ving
When I type an email address in outlook 2007 it understandably come up as a hyperlink. I've searched the entire menu and can't find how to remove it. Is it even possible to remove, and if so, how can I do it?

Rich text / HTML will always render such strings as links.

Sorry, Sean, but I think there are two methods.

First method:
From time-to-time you may wish to remove the hyperlinks from your Word
documents. Those blue underlines are helpful on your computer, but you may
not want them showing up on your printouts. Here is a method for removing all
hyperlinks from a Word document in no time flat:

Select the entire document by holding CTRL and pressing A.
While holding down CTRL and Shift, press F9.

Second method removes all hyperlinks (article is by TR's Susan Harkins):

I see that the ssharkins method will kill hyperlinks in Outlook.

i place my cursor right after the email address or web address and hit backspace, it removes the hyperlink or right click on it and choose "remove hyperlink" ....done deal.

Ironically, right clicking on the link was the one thing I didn't try, and I feel so foolish for not thinking of it myself. But that is exactly what I wanted to do.

Thanks again.
