I use Word 2000 as my e-mail editor and have setup spell check for all outgoing messages in Outlook. When using this facility for new messages, spell check displays in the correct default language(English UK). But if I "reply to sender",then I invariably have spell check displaying as "English US". Is there any way I can avoid this?

I shall appreciate help.

I have experienced the same problem several times. I really don't know what you have really tried to change the language but hopefully this helps:
Once you are in Word,
goto Tools > Options > Spelling & Grammar tab.
Click on the button 'Dictionaries'
change the language to your desired language and save.
Now it might not work for the first time, you might need to do this several times before it works.
Try also adding a new dictionary with the desired language or editting the one you already have. As a conclusion just play with the dictionary for a while. It is a pain but at the end it works.
I hope this helps

Thank you mneftci. Your suggestions worked. I apologize for not responding earlier but somehow things got out of hand.

schnauzer, if it worked, there's no need to give a B grade. Changing grade to A...

Thanks for responding! Many don't.
