In this post, we will see how to change the spellchecking language in Outlook on the Web. By default, the spellchecking language is set to English.

You can change the spellchecking language in Outlook. To do this, select a language, and expand the “Spelling” section. There you can customize the spellchecking settings, such as ignoring words in uppercase, flagging repeated words, etc. In some languages, the Grammar check feature is also available. If you do not want it, you can disable it for a specific language.
If your web browser’s spellchecking feature isn’t working after you select a language, try restarting your browser. That fixed the issue for me.
After following the steps above, you can activate the spellchecking feature in Outlook online for different languages. However, you need to restart your browser each time you change the language for spell-checking in Outlook online.
