How to set default proofing/spelling language in Outlook?

    Yeah, this is the default way and works fine(ish), however this doesn't fix the Subject - for the subject Outlook picks up the keyboard language and pushes that down your throat. I have a different keyboard language but never ever write anything in the langauge of the keyboard and by default every subject line is in that language - but my default language for mails in English. From time to time I switch to a 3:rd of 4:th language and write my message in that language, in which case I set the language for that specific email to the new language.

    Works fine except for, again, the subject. Can't get rid of the keyboard language

    (do not suggest I switch keyboard language, I may never use the language but if I change the keyboard language I lose efficiency as I am a fast typer but need the keyboard language I grew up with for that).

    Notice! I do write to people using the language I have for my keyboard as well, just never from the work computer where I have MS office installed. I am not planning on learning new, I just wish Microsoft were better at multilingual settings, as other companies manage to get it right while MS have been struggling with the same thing for year (or they don't just care)
