It may also have something to do with your email settings. At the bottom of the Advanced email options, in the XP version, is an option to "Add properties to attachments to enable reply with changes" (possibly pasted below). I don't know if it has an incarnation in W2007, but might be worth checking.

When I want someone to review changes I've made to a document I use the "track changes" option so the recipient can clearly see where amendments have been made and comment accordingly. This seems on the surface like a sensible thing to do. However I'm getting push back on using this tool because if the person I email the document to accepts all changes then saves the document and emails it on, the tracked changes reappear and if they then accept those changes and email the document on they appear again and so on and so forth. We've tried cutting and pasting into a new document and then saving it but that doesn't clear the tracked changes either. I think the only way for all the changes to be accepted once and for all is for the original creator of the document to accept them. Is this correct? Is there another way around this and / or any recommendations for another tool to track changes in Word without printing the document off and using a highlighter the old fashioned way?! Thanks!
