Need a better spell check feature that highlights words not spelled right.
Hey everyone! Thank you for your patience and apologize for any frustrations. While All bugs have been resolved on Apple’s end, the spell checker inside the app is linked to your device and keyboard settings. However, due to limitations in the Outlook mobile app, this feature is currently only available when using the quick reply option. To vote / comment on the spellcheck feature in the compose screen please go to the following link: https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/293349-outlook-for-ios/suggestions/34198510-spell-check-in-the-compose-screen-view
If you have any questions, please contact us inside the app at Settings>Help & Feedback> Contact support we look forward to assisting you. :-)
Spellcheck needs major improvement. Iphone spellcheck is better than Outlook. Outlook is very slow and does not recognize words as fast when typing.

Apple Mail allows it’s users to manually check for email as well as timeslots i.e. every 30 minutes, hour, five hours, once a day etc...
Most of the time, I’ve only just cleared everything, and then a load more come through not giving you any breathing space!
Would be nice to have the choice like Apple do give their customers
Spell check would be nice also when you send an e-mail it takes to long.

It would be good to be able to apply the check tick to emails. I use it so my EA knows I am finished with an email.

I would love to find out that this is already a feature that I just haven’t found. You do a good job of telling me when I’ve spelled something wrong, but unlike iOS you don’t correct it for me. Am I missing a setting?

Please please please can we have the red underlining of misspelt words in new messages rather than just the quick reply. Seem crazy to have this in one please but not the other. I’m forever sending emails with spelling errors as it give no indication they’re wrong
So, after installing iOS 12.2, I suddenly have spell check on the compose screen (standard red underlining for incorrectly spelled words) on both my iPad Pro 11 and my iPhone XR

This app needs a spellcheck. That will underline or autocorrect words that are spelling incorrectly.
Philip Richardson commented
Spellcheck is an essential feature that I presume would be a default feature. Please add this.

Critical feature to let me utilize the IOS outlook for my work is to have the ability to spell check my emails. Please add this feature as soon as possible.
Great app. Needs a spell check feature. It’s 2019!!!

Currently you do not offer spelling check. That’s very much required.

Seems there’s no spell check when writing my emails.
If there is..., someone please tell me how to activate it.
It's mind boggling that Outlook doesn't have spell check in the main compose window, in 2019.

I really miss and need spellcheck in this mail app. To small to notice sometimes on phone.

Every time you ask for feedback I will keep reminding you that there is no spellcheck feature when composing or responding to an email. You should find it embarrassing that this app fails to contain such a basic feature. This glaring omission makes the app much less useful. The spellcheck feature works in this comment box, so you should be able to figure it out.
Still haven’t rolled out Outlook to our firm, this and the lack of ability to search a particular folder, are the last showstoppers.
