Outlook Spelling Troubleshooting

Client:
says his spell checker when doing an email in Outlook isnt catching mispelled items? any clues?


Me:
Depends on what he means:

- "It used to make the little red squiggles under a misspelled word like in Word"
- It'll only do that if Word is the e-mail editor. "Tools" -> "Options" -> "Mail Format" -> "Use Microsoft Office Word to edit e-mail messages". Note - I'm not a fan of this personally... It makes e-mail slower ;)

- "It doesn't automagically check spelling when I send the message"
- "Tools" -> "Options" -> "Spelling" -> "Always check spelling before sending"

- "It's not catching this word..."
- "Tools" -> "Options" -> "Spelling" -> "Edit" under 'Edit custom dictionary'

- "It's just flat out not working!"
- Something else is broken ;)
