Word 2010 lumping together comments and edits from different reviewers

I created a document in Word 2010 and I am sharing it with two reviewers. When I turn on Track Changes, I can see my edits in one color, and my comments display my initials. But when the reviewers add their edits and comments and send it back to me, their comments end up the same color, and all comments, including mine, are now marked A# (A1, A2, A3).

How to prevent accepted tracked changes from carrying over into an excel + word + outlook email to 50 people?

Hi everyone, Hoping someone can help me sort this problem ... It's a excel + microsoft word document + mail merge to outlook email to 50 people. I am trying to help someone out - this is is as it just as it was described to me: Track changes were accepted and turned off and the email looked as it should - so off went 50 customized emails. ..unfortunately the sent email then shows that all the emails are sent showing all of the tracked change revision markings! Sorry if this is too vague. Thanks for your efforts :)
