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.
