spell check issues with microsoft office/outlook anyone have these problems

Found 8th Jan 2009
hi all, I know this is not a technical forum, but again I come back to the trusty people of hotukdeals, as I always get an answer!!!

I am fully the office 2007 package, with outlook 2007 - the spell check on outlook is terrible, it picks some words up but in general it completely fails to spot...

such as consultantcy - even this site picks it up as a spelling error, MS outlok 2007 doesnt - i've checked my settings, and I have spell check as you type clicked and the dictionary is set to UK....

any ideas , much appreciated


Get this all the time, I blame the Yanks!!

easy to do that

i have took the US spell off the list, so it shows only British UK....

still no joy.

I've just done a quick test as they are supposed to use the same dictionary in word and outlook using the word consultantcy - in word picked it up straight away, in outlook didnt detect and did the spell check beofre sending, and still not detected....weird one

What I mean is they can't spell in English, even if they try so many words are missed....as trying t get acorrect spelling the other day, no joy from spellcheck (mines in English too but I think that is Yank style English).
