Good evening Team

 

I have recently bought Microsoft Office 2021.

 

I am experiencing an issue with outlook where spell check is not working when composing new emails (when I compose a reply to an email the spell check works but only sometimes)

Also it works only if I copy text from say word for example and paste it into a new email in outlook. spell check is always working in word it's just outlook. So if I type a heap of jumbled characters the spell checker doesn't underline in red (like MS word is doing) I have been though all the troubleshooting with a Microsoft support agent who has checked my settings via remote assistance and he also couldn't get it to work. He checked and said that he is having the same issue with Outlook 2021 on his work machine.

He suggested I uninstall office restart my device and then install it again.

He told me to post onto this community and engineers will see this. He said I need to wait till this gets patched via update. I have a support request number #1031370106

 

Hoping it wont take too long before this gets patched as atm I have to copy my email and paste it into word before sending to check for spelling mistakes!
