Outlook Language

Whenever I write a new e-mail and then do a spell check it always shows English-US. I have changed the setting in the Tools/Options/Spelling tab to UK but it still writes in English-US. Can anyone help?

I think Outlook uses the spellchecker from M$ Word. Have a look what version of English your Word spellchecker installation is set to and if it has both US and UK english, delete the US version from the list.

Thanks 'pops' but still checks in English-US. Any more ideas?

Have a look under...

Start > Settings > Control Panel > Regional & Language Options....

Make sure the settings in there reflect English UK...

Hope that helps

Sorry people. All language settings checked and set to English UK, but still keeps spellchecking in English US. Any further ideas?

What is your MS-Word spell checking in, and which version of MS-Word is it?

Spell checker is set to English-Uk and it is Word 2002.

Right click on the clock (bottom right) and click on Language Bar. The language (as a two letter abbreviation) should come up on the task bar. Click on that and the installed languages should be shown with the default language ticked. Change if it's the wrong one.

Found the answer in START/PROGRAMMES/MICROSOFT OFFICE TOOLS/MICROSOFT OFFICE XP LANGUAGE SETTINGS. Changed to English (UK). Didn't matter what else I tried, it would not permanently change. Thank you good people!!
