Nobody wants their communications to have spelling errors left in, so let Microsoft Outlook help by automatically spell checking emails before they are sent. Of course you can manually check before sending by opening an Outlook email and head to:
Review > Spelling & Grammar
But who wants to do this for every email you send. Instead, the Microsoft Outlook desktop client has a setting that forces spell check to take place after you click the Send button. If no errors are found, the email is sent like normal. If a spelling error is found, Outlook gives you the option to correct it before the email is sent.
This is for PCs running Outlook
To enable this feature, open the Outlook desktop application and click:
File > Options
Refer to below image:
Next. in the Mail > Compose Messages section, toggle on the Always check spelling before sending checkbox. See below image:
Now, click OK in the bottom-right corner to save and close the Options panel. See following image:
Now, when we click Send on an email with a spelling error, Microsoft Outlook will pick it up and give you the chance to change it. Refer to below image:
If the spell checker has found a misspelled word and you want to change it, click Cancel. Or, you could use one of its suggestions. See below image where “Savvy” is misspelled:
If you choose to cancel, a dialog box will open that lets you quit sending the email. Click No to stop the email from being sent. See following image:
Note! The spell checker will not pick up the wrong words, just words that are spelled incorrectly. So, if you meant to type in “Savvy” but instead typed “Savoy”, the spell checker will not pick that up because “Savoy” is a correctly spelled word.
