atw: Re: Defaulting to spell checking in MS Outlook

Surely you're having a laugh, Geoff? The vendor-supplied online Help, written 
by the technical communicators at Microsoft, didn't answer your question, so 
you're turning to peer-generated help? Do you trust the answer we're going to 
supply?

I no longer have Outlook 2003, but in 2007 the setting is on Tools > Options, 
then the Spelling tab, with further options under the Spelling and 
Auto-correction button. If you are using Word as your Outlook editor, it may be 
picking up the Word preferences.

Cheers

Tony

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.

 

Cheers
