I'm working on Excel for Mac. When I type an email address into a cell, Excel
formats it automatically as a hyperlink. I know how to turn this off per
cell, but many different users will be using this sheet, and email addresses
may be typed in many different cells.

Is there a way to simply turn off the auto formatting of hyperlinks
globally, so that email addresses will remain just text?

Thanks for your help!
