Short of deactivating hyperlinks (you do not what to do that), you can choose what happens when you click a email link. For example choose the TextEdit that will now open when you accidentally click the link. No harm done, just close it, and it is certainly much less impacting then a Outlook.

Dingbats are in the Unicode 2700 range, e.g. ✈ . You need to add this from the Character Viewer, not by just changing to a "dingbat" font, which may not be Unicode.
