I have a user who is using windows XP with office 2003. When the guy goes to create a new messege he misspels something and the word is not underlined so auto spell check isnt working. I looked at other peoples fixes and here is what I have tried.  

I tried going to tools
spelling and grammer
went to custom dictionaries and choose modify
and I picked english US.

This works in word 03 but not in outlook 03.

Also, under tools options spelling I have checked check spelling as you type and always suggest corrections.

Please help me

Is your user using an Auto-signature?

If they are - type a word and spell in incorrectly, then right-click the word and see what the menu that pops up shows.  If it shows Signature options, this is because you are typing the body of the email in the Signature Block and the Spell Check does not Spell-check this part.

Either modify the Autosignature to allow the body of the email to be out of the signature block, or type outside of the Autosignature block.
