Entourage - Spell Check

Before you send an email message it is a good idea to check for spelling errors. Entourage uses the same spelling checker as Word. When a spell check occurs, a Spelling dialog box opens with the first ‘suspect’ word flagged.

  • Once your email message is typed, choose Tools menu -> Spelling, this will check your message for spelling errors and put a red squiggly line underneath the misspelled words or the words/names it does not recognize.
  • A spelling dialog box will open with word choices/suggestions/corrections.
  • Additional options with the word choices are –
    • Ignore – ignore this instance of the word
    • Ignore All – ignore this and all other instances of the word wherever they are found in this message.
      Add – accept the word as correct and add it to your custom dictionary so that it will be recognized in future spell checks.
    • Change – replaces the suspect word with the choice you have selected.
    • Change All – replaces the suspect word and all other instances of the word that is found in this message.
    • AutoCorrect – add the misspelling to the Office’s AutoCorrect list. In future sessions Office program will correct this misspelling automatically by substituting the word you have selected in the Suggestions list.
