Hello!
Do you mean the auto-correct? (In which your common spelling mistakes are automatically corrected?)

Tool > Options > Spelling tab > "Spelling and AutoCorrection" > Proofing (left side tab) > AutoCorrect Options...
Hope this helps!

Thank you.  How do I get the red underlining when the word's spelling is not correct?

In the same area (AutoCorrect Options...) - ensure there is a check next to "Check Spelling as you Type"

I'm sorry - not in "AutoCorrect Options..." but one step before that > under the left-side "Proofing" tab...

Thank you.  That is checked but it still does not underline it when I type it.

I will check a little further - but can you also check under the "Popular" tab > Language Settings... > ensure the proper language is selected.

This may also be something with Outlook not using Word as the editor, but I will check further on this.

I should have clarified this earlier - but did you install Word 2007 as well? Outlook 2007 needs Word 2007 (not an earlier version) for autocorrect.

Sorry, I should have thought of it sooner. StandAlone Outlook 2007 misses a few features:
