How to configure the spell check dictionary's language preference in OWA 2007

This article applies to the following products:  
     Messageware Plus Pack 2007

 

SUMMARY

 

Unlike the previous versions of OWA, in OWA 2007, the spell check dictionary language is not dependent upon the browser language. The spell check dictionary language is configured the first time when a user logs into their OWA account, and selects their mailbox language. The language is then stored in the user’s mailbox settings.
