Why would Outlook 2007 suddenly quit checking spelling?

SMPC asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
My Father In Law, who at 91, is one of the best layman computer users I have ever seen, is now all discombobulated. His MS Outlook 2007 has quit checking the spelling/grammar on his outgoing emails. It still displays the 'spell check is complete' widow but we know, due to our test words, that it isn't really checking. Yes, we have a check in the little box that says 'always check... for spelling' but no joy. Spell check does work in Word, just not Outlook. Could be a bit flip in the registry? A zero to one reversal?

Thank you.
