Hello all,

We are using Windows XP sp2 and office 03 sp2. I am getting some complaints that when people are typing a new message in outlook, outlook is not capitalizing the first word of the sentence or the the letter "i". We have the auto correct setup and configured to do this and we have the options checked but it is not working. We are not using Word 2003 to read or edit emails and have disabled this option for other "business" reasons. Does anybody know of a way to achieve this.

Thanks

To resolve this issue, on the toolbar press 'tools' > Options >

then select the 'Spelling' tab , under here there is an option "auto correct options' from here just untick the box :)

Nope, I need the autocorrect to be on and catch the words that need to be capitalized. right now it doesn't and I have those options checked. I have tried unticking those options but it doesn't seem to have any effect either way. sorry

what is your current format for emails RTF ? plain ? HTML?

change it to another format and start a new email and try it. If your attempting to reply to an old email, it may still use the old settings, so start a new one and tell me what happens
