Stop spellchecker asking for cancel approval?

Is there anyway to do this? When I cancel spellcheck I mean it...

Thanks - apologies for the low points.

Well, you could always disable spell checking altogether...

Whenever I send an email with say something like "chown" in it the spelling window comes up. Let's say that I am sending an email where I don't care about the spelling etc, I would like to just cancel, without the window coming up asking me if I am sure. If that makes sense.

One hit - cancel. No questions. That is what I am asking. Any ideas?

Why don't you just add that word to your dictionary, so that Outlook will stop thinking it's
a misspelling?  Or hit Ignore All, so that it will ignore that word and other instances of it in
the message (but not add it to the dictionary)?

Dude - you obviously do not write a lot of documents or reports! Every customer of mine has departments with group names and policy names like NMA NHID that do not appear in any dictionary - you miss my point. I just want the question to no longer be asked.

Supress question notification on spell check cancel.

All I want.

Dude, you do not know a thing about me.  I am very good at what I do, and that includes reports.

No, I am not missing your point.  Reread my post.  I suggested you add these words to your custom
dictionary.  That is what that little "Add" button on the spell check form does.  If you add NMA NHID
to your custom dictionary, you will stop being asked if it is misspelled.

I do not think there is a way to do that.

Patrick there is simply no way that I can add every new acronym into my personal spell checker and stay sane or in control of all the client corporate structures and technologies that I deal with on a day-to-day basis.

I do not know anything about you, you have taken the time to try and help me with my Outlook problem and I appreciate that - so you must be a helpful guy.

You said "I do not think there is a way to do that."

That is answer enough for me - will continue to waste my time on that extra click.

Thankyou for your help.

Bad form to respond to one's own post but:

I sounded like an ass in the last post - when I said corporate structures I meant the acronyms involved - not me being a big corporate guy. And when I talked about technologies I meant all the acronyms involved. So many of them.

Just annoys me having to add everything to my own dictionary, I am a consultant and I should learn how to move the learned terms from one machine to another. Haven't had another computer other than a toy outside of my company laptop for as long as I can remember.

ferg-o,

No worries.  Outlook is trying its best to be "helpful" by confirming that you want to skip the spell check.
We might wish it wouldn't try so hard, and at times we can prevent it.  I do not think this is one of
those times.

If you have custom dictionary files from past jobs or whatever, there are ways to leverage them.  I have
not had to do that in the past, but it can be done.  I would ask a question about that here, or in Word.
