This happens when you have Word as the email editor and configured it to show Field Codes. To disable it:

Outlook/Word 2003 and previous:

While composing choose Tools > Options > Tab View > section Show and uncheck the option “Field codes”.

Outlook/Word 2007:

Press the Office logo in the left upper corner > Editor Options > Advanced > section “Display e-mail content” and uncheck the option “Show field codes instead of their values”.
