Outlook 2010 spell check or lack of

June 30, 2011

So I had this on a couple of machines. Basically Outlook 2010 – doesn’t matter if it’s using Word as editor or not, doesn’t work. It will capitalize words etc but won’t spell check.
The fix was really simple. Basically just delete a registry entry;

  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Proofing Tools\1.0\Override\en-US

Back the entry (Export) and then delete it.
I closed down Outlook and reopened and it just worked, with checking as I type, as well as before it sends it.
Cool stuff.
