I'm not sure what I did, but the quotes (single and double) in Outlook 2003 have gone from straight vertical quotes to angled quotes. I've looked through Outlook's options and the Autocorrect options, and I can't seem to find anything that would enable/disable this feature?

If I remember correctly, you can press Ctrl + Shift + ' to turn this feature on or off.

The shortcut is undocumented (it doesn't appear in Keyboard shortcuts), and I'd say it's pretty easy to enable by mistake...

Yup, that was it! Thanks!! :) Is this (or similar "hidden" features) documented anywhere? – FrustratedWithFormsDesigner Nov 3 '11 at 15:29
No, as it appears. At least, it does not appear in the offical list of shorcuts (link). – Dennis Nov 3 '11 at 15:34
