We had office xp installed on some of our machines.  In outlook it had spelling and grammar check.  We moved some to a new office with SBS 2003 and upgraded the outlook to 2003.  Now the grammer check is missing.  Whats the deal?

Prior to outlook 2003 , were u using word as default email editor and then doing grammar checking ?

If yes, then for outlook 2003 to use word as default email editor , you need to have word 2003.
..
There has been a lot of questions regarding why outlook 2003 needs Word 2003 but i have not seen an answer stating that but looks like MS forces outlook 2003 users to have word 2003 if they need word as default editor.

if you were not using word as editor , is that grammar option disabled or you cannot find it anywhere ??

I am not using word as my editor.  When I go into mail format, the option is greyed out to use word.  I cannot find any option to turn on a grammer check on.

The option might be greyed out to use word because you may not have word 2003.. Do you have word 2003 ?

I don't recall changing anything.  Whatever the default installiation is.  But I do believe it was word as the editor though.

sunray is correct.  You have to have Word set as your email editor to use grammar (and a few other features) and you can't set Word as your editor if your Word and Outlook are not the same version.
