Outlook 2013 doesn't allow auto correct setting changes

I have a client who has Outlook 2013 and Office 2007 on Windows 8.1.  After installing Outlook 2013, it was noticed that the Proof Reading and Auto-Correct settings in Options-->Mail were grayed out.   We wonder why these features are not available and how to enable them.

Any insights in this regard would be most welcome.

Thanks much for any guidance.

Hello,

might be related to the different versions of office  installed. Does the auto correct function works in winword? If so, check if he'se using word as an email editor.

It turns out that multiple versions of Office were installed and eliminating the older one, and then repairing the newer one did the trick.   Thanks@
