Email, Exchange, Outlook - Disable Outlook Apps

In Exchange 2013, apps for Outlook are now available and the Bing Maps add-in is enabled by default. These instructions detail how to disable any add-ins, including Bing Maps.

A feature of Exchange 2013 will display an option for "Bing Maps" if Outlook believes there is an address in the email message. The following image shows the option to click "Bing Maps" to display a map of the location included in the text of the email. This map will drop down and be displayed in Outlook just above the email message.
