Outlook 2003 Word Editor spell check

Hi Experts,

I am using outlook 2003 which is using word 2003 as the email editor.

when I am typing an email it will underline anything red if it is incorrectly spelt however if I start a sentence without a capital letter it doesn't recognise this as being incorrectly spelt or incorrect grammar.

I know that I have used systems before which automatically change the first letter of any word to a capital letter when placed at the beginning of a sentence.

does anyone know how to enable this feature?

In word, click Tools:

Select AutoCorrect Options from the menu bar. The AutoCorrect Options dialog box appears.
Check the following option:
Capitalize the first letter of the sentence

Hope it helps

Hi Pedro,

this didn't work however opening an email in Excel and then repeating the process you explained above did work.
