Spell Check in Outlook

Thursday, September 3rd, 2009 by | Filed Under: MS Outlook

Many of us rely on the spellcheck feature in MS Word and PowerPoint, so why not in Outlook?

Or, maybe you do, but you’re doing so by activating the feature manually before sending out each message.

Either way (manual operation or none at all), why not set Outlook to behave like your other programs and have it check your messages automatically?

Sounds like a good plan to me, so the next step is to find out how to do this.

We’re looking for the Options choice in the Tools menu.

It’s on the Spelling tab that we’ll find what we need.

Older versions of Outlook will look like this:


Outlook 2007 will look like this:


No matter what version you’re using you need to check the “Always check spelling before sending” option and click OK.

Voila! Now, Outlook will check your spelling automatically, just like the rest!
