Hi,

When typing a message using Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 and I make a spelling mistake the program fails to recognize the mistake, infact not once does it ever show a red line. This isn't just for specific words but all of them. I have check settings compared to Microsoft Office Word 2007, which words perfectly, and all the settings looks the same.

What could be the problem?

Thank you

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.

Outlook 2007 Spell Checker Not Working:
 recently upgraded Office 2003 to Office 2007 on my computer and learned that my spell checker was no longer working in Outlook 2007! Usually, it would automatically show me misspelled words immediately if I mistyped them, however, after the upgrade, nothing was being marked.
Even if I ran the spell checker manually, it would complete without marking or correcting any of the misspelled words! Annoying! After doing some research, I found a couple of possible solutions.
