    Hello Mate,

    Thanks a lot for this writing this article.
    I could solve the problem. Just have a query.
    In my outlook, I see one more custom dictionary named as RoamingCustom.dic and I am unable to delete the same.
    Please let me know if you have any idea of the same.

    Thanks,
    Gaurav

      I get the same, I think it relates to the server policy. Lost my dictionary and Outlook will not add words to the doctionary.
