Outlook 2007 will not spell check within signature

Outlook 2003 did not have this problem, but 2007 will not spell check inside of a signature, this is such an obvious bug I am stunned...

1) using quick parts works but it is a pain, I would like for it to work automatically
2) "set language" and then unchecking "do not spell check" works but it can not be unchecked forever, just for each use
3) I can't just type before or after the signature, I have a signature with text on top and on bottom and I have to type inside the text...
help please!
thanks...

This fix worked:
Start Regedit and goto the following key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Proofing
Tools\1.0\Override\en-US
I had 2 entries (DLL and LEX) pointing to non-existing files.
Rename these to oldDLL and oldLEX.

I really appreciate you trying, sorry I forgot to mention, I actually tried this, I don't have a 1.0/override, just 1.0/ custom dictionaries and 1.0/office...any other ideas?
thanks so much in advance!

Not at the moment, but I have been able to duplicate your issue.  My problem is, right now, that I'm running Outlook 2007 with Office 2003, so I can't be sure of anything I test.  Will try to take a more in-depth look at the issue for you though.

No - from the blog link above, I take it that there is no way to change that....

I will try to take it to Microsoft for a fix.
