Hi All,

We have a user that is having problems with Outlook.

In her mail spelling options, she has checked 'Always check spelling before sending' & 'Ignore original message text in reply or forward'.

The problem is that Outlook still checks the original message, and when you're replying to a real long mail - can sometimes be a problem.

Has anyone heard of this? And is there a way to fix it? Everything appears to be setup the same as everyone else (Mail set to HTML, Use Word to create mails etc).

Many Thanks,

Pete

PeterHing,

Sorry, I missed that part.  If the settings are correct, there is a problem with the integration between Outlook and MS Word.

Go to MS Word options > Spelling, and make sure the settings are correct.

If no joy, in Tools > Mail Format, uncheck MS Word as editor.  Restart Outlook.

If no joy, in Outlook, go to Help > Detect and Repair. Do the same in MS Word.

If no joy, you may need to repair or reinstall MS Office. Go to Add/Remove Programs, and select the Repair option in MS Office.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.
