        Outlook 2019 [The MSI version] Spell Checker
        I’m in the UK running Outlook 2019 using Imap protocol to connect to Gmail.
        Is there a solution to the following observation?

        Email Subject line contains “Colour and Color” – “Colour” is marked as incorrect- red wavey line, “Color” is unmarked.
        However
        Message Body contains “Colour and Color” – “Color” is marked as incorrect- red wavey line, “Colour” is unmarked

        W10 Display Language – English (United Kingdom) – no other language selected.
        W10 Preferred languages – English (United Kingdom) – no other language selected.

        Windows 10 Pro
        Version: 21H1
        Installed on:: ‎17/‎06/‎2020
        OS build: 19043.1023

        Which Office Language Preferences are set at Outlook, File, Options, Language under Office display language and Office authoring languages and proofing?

        My guess is that you need to change the first of those two to have;

        1. Match Microsoft Windows [UK English] <preferred>

        as the first in the list.

        Windows 10 Pro version 21H2 build 19044.1149 + Microsoft 365 (group ASAP)

          Thanks @b for your comments. The original settings for Language were:-

          Buttons, menus, and other controls ……
          1. Engish <preferred>
          2. Match Microsoft Windows [English]
          Manage languages used for creating …….
          English (United Kingdom) <preferred> Proofing installed

          Alas, swapping 1 & 2 seemed to make no improvement to my sitiuation.

          @b Thanks for your link. Another example of “Outlook” not responding to customer comments.

          Think I might add my £’s worth or should I say $ ? 😉
