Outlook "Easter Egg"
Ok, It's probably not a true easter egg but..
Just found that if you type *text* (inlcuding the *'s) it auto converts it to BOLD!
Nopt sure what others there are...

Asterisks against words has worked in Word as far back as 2000 I think.

_italic_ is one, then there's "smart quotes", superscript ordinals (1st etc), -- replaced with one long dash, and a few others like autoformatting
- list item one
- list item two
into a proper list.
It's actually Word's autocorrect formatting.

I knew a few of them, but never seen this one happen before - and the asterisk one does not appear to work in Word 2010...

Seems to in mine - have you switched autocorrect off in Word?
