How do I turn off highlighting words in my email text messages

The new hotmail seems to have a feature that is very distracting which is highlighting words in the emails. How can I turn this off.

I this happening as you type the email? If so, open Settings (gear icon), View all outlook settings, then Compose and reply - at the very bottom are suggestions.

If you mean something else, a screenshot can help us understand the issue.

When words are getting highlighted it's usually the Joyful animations it will cause words like Welcome Thankyou happy words as they say be highlighted.
1) Click on the Gear in the top right
2) Scroll to the bottom of the Quick Settings Pane and Select Full Settings
3) Under the Mail settings Select Compose and Reply
4) Here you will find Joyful animations. You can disable it and save it from there.

Hope this helps!

Thanks, I did that. So I suppose the incoming mail will still have the highlights since someone else hasn't turned it off?
