'07 - turning of spell check?


D

I'm really hating how Outlook 2007 promps you to fix your spelling before
you can send an email. Questions:

1) Can I turn off that prompt, but retain inline-spell checking (where it
underlines words?)

2) Is there a way to have it NOT check the quoted part of messages when
replying? I don't care if other people can't spell.

1. No.
2. Depends on how you have quoting set.

The final check of email before sending (after pressing the send button) can
be disabled - spell check before sending option. The only advantage of using
this and spell-check as you type is before sending checks the subject, as
you type does not. Look for the option in tools, options, spelling. I use
this option to check the subject then cancel it once it's working in the
body.

It normally does not check replies (i.e., using default settings), but may
if you use > to mark quoting. There may be other configs that also kick it
off. That can't be prevented except by changing the settings that are
causing it. But there is a setting you can enable to control it.

Look for the settings in tools, options, spelling for both of your
problems - spell check as you type is under the autocorrect button.
