Weird text insertions when a user sends or replies to email

Guest

We have a user who is having a strange problem every time they try to send an
email. At the top of every reply or message, the words Katherine Katherine
appear in large text. Although it sounds like a virus I don't think it is. I
looked at the source of the message and I see that Katherine Katherine is
part of a <title></title> field. I look at other email message sources from
other individuals and don't see that same <title> field.

The user has Outlook 2003 on Windows XP SP2. Where is this setting located
and how do I turn it off? (besides just using plain text).

The entire source of the <head> tag is:

<head>
<meta http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=us-ascii">
<meta name=Generator content="Microsoft Word 11 (filtered medium)">

A problem in the document template, perhaps? Try deleting normal.dot and
allow Word to recreate it.

We will try that. The user works at a remote site so it is hard to connect
but I bet that is it, although how it got that way I can only wonder.

In the mean-time, she is happy with plain text email, which also provided a
temporary fix.

Thanks!
