Running Office 2003 in a networked XP Pro environment, including Citrix. Wondering if the is a way to set a mandatory spell check for all users from the server level? I am truly hoping not to hit every user/PC personally.

Any help or thoughts would be great, thanks!!!

I have never done it before. I have some users that don't actually like the spell checker prompting them after a message is composed. :thumbsup:

I found a couple of links that might help you find the answer.

I am sure if you test the deployment packages, it will have an area to customize menu settings within Outlook.

Hope that helps,

This can be done using active directory. Assuming you are using a MS domain, you go into Objects and applications in the active directory policies. There you control most aspects of users. The easiest way is to administer this is to send instructions to everyone with simple instructions to use MS Word as the email editor. This uses spell check inherently. If you are not careful, making it a domain wide policy can create frustrations larger than mispelled words.
