in this article what will concern you more is this :

When a user tries to check the spelling of a message or a post, they may receive an error message that is similar to one of the following error messages:

Error Message 1

Outlook Web Access was unable to check the spelling on this item due to an error.

Error Message 2

The spelling in this item can't be checked. Try again later.
To troubleshoot this error message:
In Internet Services Manager, make sure that the Exchweb/Bin/Spell virtual directory exists and that it contains the dictionary files.
In Internet Services Manager, make sure that that the authentication methods set on the /Spell virtual directory are inherited from the /Bin virtual directory.
In Internet Services Manager, make sure that that the Execute permissions that are set on the /Spell virtual directory are inherited from the /Bin virtual directory. Specifically, the Execute permissions should be set for Scripts and Executables.
Make sure that all OWA users are using Internet Explorer 5.0 or later.
Investigate whether antivirus programs or other programs that perform file-level scanning are preventing the spelling checker from working correctly.

Thanks it was Default Web Sites, Exchweb Virtual Directory, Executable Permissions needed to be set as Scripts & Executables. Regards John Bosich.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

We did all this.  Microsoft finaly gave up and told us to do a total uninstall  and reinstall of Exchange and IIS.  Spell check was not worth the effort.

This solution helped me!

Basically I enabled "scripts/exec" under the mentioned virtualweb and changed the security to from integrated & basic to just basic b/c we use SSL.
