Spell checker works in Word but not Outlook 2007 for one user. What is the best way to fix this without having to go into the registry or creating a new user's profile?

Are they using Email Autosignatures?

If they are, then may be typing in the middle of the AutoSignature block and you can't spell-check that part!

Does Spell Check work without the Auto-Signature (assuming one is being used)?

Okay - worth a shot!

Have you tried a Repair of Outlook?

Control Panel> Programs & Features> Change Office or Outlook and then select Repair.

I have run a repair on the Office suite. That didn't resolve the issue. I uninstalled the Office suite completely and that didn't work either. Spell checker works in Word but not Outlook. Any other suggestions?

Not tried this myself (don't have Office 2007), but the following blog looks promising:

I am sure these instructions would work but not on this PC. I ended up giving the user another PC which was working properly.
