Spell Check Not Working While Typing


  • I can't get spell checker to identify words that are spelled wrong while I'm typing. When I had outlook 2003, it would give the red squiggly line under the incorrect words but it doesn't do that in Outlook 2010. I have it set to check spelling before sending and that works but under file > options > mail > proofing the section for "When correcting spelling in Outlook" is all grayed out.

  • Hi,

    Some of the spelling options are available only when you have the same version of Word installed. Make sure you have the Word 2010 installed properly. If the issue persists, please have the latest Office updates patched on your computer.
