atw: Defaulting to spell checking in MS Outlook

Hi austechies,


If you have been reading my recent emails, you may have gathered that I'm a
crap speller, and probably don't know how to turn on the spell-checker. Yes,
and no. I'm running MS Outlook 2003 on Windows XP, and every time I deselect
the "Do not check spelling and grammar" option, the option is selected by
default when I next open Outlook. And thus I send emails thinking the
spell-checker is on when it has bloody well turned itself off. 


Has anyone got any ideas how to set spell-checking as the default? The OLH
is of absolutely no use.
