how do I spell check my emails
how to Spell check your emails in Outlook
Make spellcheck suggestions part of the right-click menu. Outlook for web is the only program I use that uses left-click to access these. It makes it confusing.
PLEASE re-enable spell checker to be done by keyboard (via the drop down menu) rather than forcing us to click via the mouse. This is extremely slow and combersome to use. How this got through the design process is beyond me. Not everyone is using touch screen. Many people who use your "office" package are infact Office workers. Why would you have 2 in comparable systems within the same package? The fact that this very complaint box uses the regular spell checker and is nested WITHIN the outlook brower page with the other version is frankly bizar. Please stop forceing these changes through without consulting the user. Its a coin flip as to whether they are marginally quicker or massively hampering depending on the user. Almost never are they solid improvements.
spell check, it was fine before using right click, wtf, please just stop changing things that don't actually make a difference other than moving buttons around and making it simply "different" i still have to f****** click on the word itself anyways

The online Outlook page seems to have changed how it displays its spell check suggested corrections. Before, I'd right-click on it and select, but now it requiring me to left/main-click it. This is problematic, because 1) I feel most other applications uses right-click and so having to keep remembering to left-click is frustration when I keep clicking incorrectly. 2) It seems to not have an easy keyboard shortcut to display that spell-checking drop-down menu that displays when you left-click. 3)
Can you please reinstate the right-click spell checker?
(PS. I just notice that even from this text field in which I'm writing this feedback, it's displaying the spell check suggestions in the right-click context menue...and not after left-clicking it like is now required while composing emails. Why is it different between two different text fields within the same page/ company?
Right now Microsoft Outlook forces a spell check on my emails in the same language as my system language.
Unlike the built-in feature of my web-browser, there's no quick way to change the language of the spell check that I am using.
This is completely backward behaviour for international environments (such as universities) where one is inclined to write in multiple languages. Either enable me to use the spell check for multiple languages at the same time, or let me use my built-in spell check from my browser, where I can just change the language with a right-click.
spell checker not working when composing email. In the past spell checker would highlight incorrectly spelled words as you typed. All day today I've noticed that no spell checking is happening.
The email tool needs a spelling auto-correct.
Great new invention called spell check-you guys should check it out....*******'!

Add spell check to Outlook 365
So, you've implemented grammar and spell checking, good, but why the **** can't I specify more than one language? The setting is also hidden away far down the settings menu, so it's not easy to change. The built-in browser spell check was a lot better, and now I can't even use that, because you've blocked it when adding this feature. Extremely poor design... fix it, please!
