Turn off spell check in Outlook

I'm sending emails in Outlook via Access. Ran into a snag. The spell check is stopping the emails from going out. Is there a programmatic way to turn off, ignore, not enable spell check ONLY when sending emails from Access. I'm using Office version 2013.

Spell checker is on or off and not dependent on what wrote the email.

Can you determine why Access is an issue?

Is this true for all users or just one user?

Spell checker is on for everybody. But we do not want it invoked if sending an email thru Access!

You cannot (so far as I know) control Spell Checker by application. You may have to just turn it off (although, like others, I use spell checker all the time).

@John
I appreciate the feedback.

Does anyone else want to weigh in?
We did not have an issue when sending emails from Access thru Notes.

Dear user
To Turn Off Spell Check:
1. Go to Tools
2. Click on Options
3. Select on Mail Format
4. Untick the boxes that say "Use Microsoft Office Word 2003 to edit email messages"

Correct. That's why I posted "No answer found"

All responses where information I already knew about. There was no resolution to the question so I feel there should be no points awarded.
