This information applies to Microsoft Office Outlook 2007
- Open a new e-mail message.
- On the Message tab, in the Proofing group, click the arrow under Spelling.
- Click Set Language .
- Select the Detect language automatically check box.
- Review the languages shown above the double line in the Mark selected text as list. Outlook can only detect those languages listed above the double line. If there are languages you use that are not shown above the double line, you must enable those languages (turn on the language-specific options) to have Outlook automatically detect them.
Note Automatic language detection does not work on a single-word basis but on a sentence basis. Depending on the length of your sentences, you might need to type several sentences before Outlook has enough contextual information to automatically detect the language and apply the correct dictionary.
