    The setting given are the standards I always set and this does not help with misspelling in subject line other than to show them Outlook 2016 still does nothing to autocorrect them even if i add the specific word and try again. The same misspelling in the body of the email does get autocorrected. In the subject line it only gets red squigglies. Glad for that to at least be able to manually correct I guess but why doesn't the autocorrect work in Subject line?

    Nice trick,
    Come to read this after noticing a spelling error on my subject line.
