  • Does anyone know how to add words to the Dictionary in OWA?

    It keeps seeing my name as misspelled.

  • I'm pretty sure this hasn't changed since OWA 2003, which means it isn't natively possible.

  • Has this changed at all for OWA 2007?  We would like to add words to our installation.

  • NO.  This feature was NOT added to Exchange 2007 OWA.

    I wish it were.  Exchange 2007 OWA complain about half of my Exchange 2007 OWA signature.

  • Bumping this as I have the same need to add words.  Is there a way to add a dictionary?  Maybe modify the langauge dictionary and rename it?

  • Has anyone tried to do this in 2010 to see if it is possible?

  • Hello Nermin,

    i checked in the OWA 2010, i have a Office 365 account. But i couldnt get that option of adding words to dictionary. Is it specific to Ex 2010 on premise server or does that applies to office 365 also

  • Well, when I tested it I was using google chrome as a browser. I realize that this option is not available with IE, but if you try it with chrome you should be good to go.

    In this case you were adding the word to chrome's dictionary - not OWA.  You would not benefit from this when using another computer as that dictionary is stored locally within your desktop's profile.

  • I don't think you understood the question correctly; there is not option to add to dictionary when you right click in OWA, hence the question posed to the forum.

  • I am still hoping to find the answer to this question.  Exchange 2010 OWA has a dictionary language choice...now to just figure out where the dictionary is stored, as they still don't have the option to add to dictionary.
