set-mailbox alias -languages <code> is not working

I ran the following command against my mailbox:

set-mailbox ALIAS -languages "es-ES"

When I access my mailbox via OWA, its in Spanish, but when I use Outlook 2003, 2007 or 2010 on a desktop its still in English.

What am I missing?

thank you

Several Exchange components display information to a mailbox user in the preferred language, if that language is supported. These components include quota messages, non-delivery reports (NDRs), the Microsoft Office Outlook Web App user interface, and Unified Messaging (UM) voice prompts.

The language of the Outlook application on the client computer is not controlled by the server, but by the language setting on the workstation (and possibly the languages which were installed with Outlook).

So, if I have a spanish version of outlook on my desktop, but the exchange server my mailbox is on is english, I will see my mailbox in english, unless I change the mailbox's language code?
