Only spell check your email, and not the forward or reply in Outlook 2007

Have you noticed when you spell check an email where you are replying to or forwarding another email, that sometimes spell check decides it needs to highlight the poor spelling of your friend or colleague?

Well if you get annoyed by that as much as I do, you will be glad to know there is a setting in Outlook 2007 to ensure that the spelling and grammar checker only checks the content you wrote.

To ignore the original message text in reply or forward:

1) Click “Tools”

2) Click “Options”

3) Click on the “Spelling” tab

4) Check the box “Ignore original message text in reply or forward”


‘till next time!
