Hi,

I'm trying to to fix the spell checker to be enabled through group policy, and also the language of the spell check to be fixed to UK English. The spell checker has already been fixed on by a previous administrator, but defaults to US English. How can I change this?

I've read this : http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/2003_Server/Q_22071368.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+check+group+outlook+polici+spell
which suggested changing the locale. On the machine in question, I went to regional settings in control panel and every refference in there is set to UK.

I don't know for Outlook (but assume its the same): Word enumerates the installed keyboards to determine which English variant it should use.
So meaning if you have EN-US and EN-GB keyboard layouts  installed on your machine, it will default to US English and not to UK English. So uninstall any keyboard layout with reference to American keyboard layout.

I think this is impossible trough GPO.
You could do it with a script running in the user's context

i.e.:
Rundll32 shell32,Control_RunDLL intl.cpl,,/f:"c:\unattend.txt"

c:\unattend.txt contains:

[RegionalSettings]
InputLocale=0809:00000809


but I'm afraid it will not uninstall the US keyboard...
