Here are the simple steps that you can follow to turn on or off the grammar check and spell check features available on your favorite e-mail application, Microsoft Outlook 2003. Before you attempt turning these features on or off, you should know that these features when turned on can help you to create professional-looking mails as they will keep a check on any typo that you may make while creating the mail body.

1. Open Microsoft Outlook 2003.
2. Click ‘New’ and then compose a new message.
3. After composing the message, click on the ‘Tools’ menu and then click on ‘Options’.
4. Click the ‘Spelling & Grammar’ tab.
5. To turn the grammar check and spell check off, click to clear the ‘Check spelling as you type’ and ‘Check grammar as you type’ check boxes and then click on ‘OK’.
6. To turn the grammar check and spell check on, click to select the ‘Check spelling as you type’ and ‘Check grammar as you type’ check boxes and then click on ‘OK’.
