    Programmatically spellcheck message in Outlook (Outlook 2000 sr1)

    Hi all; I have a macro that, among other things, sends the current item. Unfortunately, the item.send command ignores the user's spell-check options. Is there a way to force a spell-check programmatically, like a spellcheck method or something?

    Basically I want to do this:

    'user creates item, clicks my send button
    'do my code
    item.spellcheck
    item.send

    Thanks in advance...

    Sorry, can't be done! <img src=/S/bummer.gif border=0 alt=bummer width=15 height=15> Of course, can't is not an acceptable answer, but the only way that I know to spell-check a message in an Outlook macro is for the macro to copy the message, open a new Word document, paste the message, and do the spell-check in Word. --Sam

    Eh, that's too much trouble. Plus, my users are accustomed to this macro NOT spellchecking; I was just checking to see if I could add that functionality somehow. It was worth a shot...

    Thanks!
