Outlook 2010 Spellcheck in Signature not automated

Hi there

We have created an HTML Mail Signature for Outlook 2010. The layout looks like a web-page and allows the user to type in the middle of the page (so that there is a header and a footer above and below the text respectively). The spellchecker works automatically when typing above or below the

The problem is that the spellchecker does not work automatically when typing in this space. One has to manually highlight the text, click on the Review tab on the bar menu and then click on the Set Proofing Language on the Language tab. Then untick the "Do not check spelling or grammar" box. This allows this area to be spellchecked.

What are my options to fix this? Is there anyway to set this as the default? Is there another mail client that would work for this (that has the HTML signature, spelling and is compatible with  Windows 7)?

Would really appreciate the help in resolving this!

Hi

There is an option inside the area you mentioned that allows you to set your choices as default. Have you tried that?

I couldn't see any that included this option. I see the language defaults, but none relate to the spell checking.

But inside that screen is the option do not check spelling and grammar. If you start a new message then go into that screen, remove the tick and then click on set as default. I tested and when I started my next new message it had remembered.

It remembers it for the text outside of the HTML text, not between the header and footer. Is there a way to get it to remember it to apply to the text written in the signature? When I try this it starts with the option unticked and then when I type in the signature area it adds the tick back and I have to untick it after I have typed everything I need to.
