How to set default proofing/spelling language in Outlook?

Author: Kelly Last Modified: 2020-05-27

For example, when you type the word of Colour in the British way in an email, this word will be marked as misspelling as below screenshot shown. It will be quite boring to get such misspelling if you type words in British way frequently. Actually, you can easily fix this problem with changing the default proofing language in Outlook.

Me enviaron un e-mail con algunas palabras en portugues, cuando quiero responder el e-mail, me corrige todo el e-mail como si fuera portugues, aún escribiendo en español. Modifiqué el idioma predeterminado, puse todo lo que tengo en español, y no hay caso, sigue corrigiendo el e.mail en portugues reemplazando automáticamente "en" por "em", o "con" por "com".... Horrible el desempeño. ¿Tengo que reinciar la PC para que funcione?. Estoy bastante frustrado.
