Spellcheck dictionary is always English (U.S.)

When I send a mail, the spell checker automatically kicks in with a dictionary language of English (U.S.)
I want it to be English (U.K.)

How can I change this?

Hi openshac,

In Outlook 2003 under Tools -> Option -> Mail Format, you will find an option to choose your language. You can change it to the desired version of English.

If you need more help, let me know!

Thanks for your reply under Tools -> Option -> Mail Format I have three sections "Message format", "Stationery and Fonts", "Signatures" but unfortunately no language option.
Look to see what you have set as the mail editor (same place as above).  
If it is set to word then you need to change your default dictionary in word in normal.dot

Yes I do have Word as my default editor but the default language for Word is already English (U.K.)
To check I opened up the Normal.dot and checked the default language in the status bar and in Tools > Language > Set Language.  Both say English (U.K.)

Any other suggestions?

Yes you have to go to Programs > Microsoft Office > Microsoft Office Tools > Microsoft Office 2003 Language Settings > 'Choose the language that defines default behaviour in Microsoft Office applications"
