Arrow Is this possible?

Hello!

I currently have a Windows 10 on my new laptop with Office 365 and when I click on version about option I see Word 2019 MSO 16.0 and Outlook 2019 16.0.

I have a few emails that are logged inside Outlook and when I open Word, they are all logged in on the top right corner.

This is an issue for me because I realized that if I save/edit a Word document, Word automatically places the name of the person associated with one of the emails as the author.

Every time I close out the following prompt, https://i.imgur.com/5CNu1EH.png - Outlook continues to ask me to log in every time unless I click yes. Now, when I cancel that prompt out, Microsoft Word doesn't log any of my emails. Which is what I want however, Outlook keeps on asking me for my credentials repeatedly.

Is there a way to remove my emails out of Microsoft Word while keeping my emails maintained in Outlook without re-adding my credentials every-time?



If there is no way to reconfigure it, then the only thing I can think of is create a macro to have Microsoft Word automatically remove my personally identifying information for every document thereafter. Especially since the option is grayed out: https://i.imgur.com/V0VBCzd.png

My other question is, since there is a option in Outlook that would enable me to read all emails in plain text. Is it possible to create a macro/vba code that would allow me to pick and choose which emails I can read in plain text/no HTML? I get a lot of phishing emails and would like to avoid any email trackers from hitting me.

Thank you and hope someone can help me out!

Taking the last part first: File > Options > Trust Center > Email Security > Read all standard mail in plain text.

It has always been the case that when you create a document. The Author is the person associated with the application. You can edit or remove the Author from Word File > Info > Author. - or you can examine the document's properties more simply with Word Variables etc. Editor

The read all in plain text, I know. I am looking to select that option when viewing certain emails i.e., custom VBA coding.

Yes I know its always been the case. I just want something automatic, please check out my original post.
