Using Outlook 2007.

Is it possible to delete entries from the dictionary?

(I guess the same question applies to MS Word).

If nothing else, can we manually edit it

and if so, where is it?

Thanks

Search for custom.dic

You can open this in Notepad for editing.

Another way to do it;

Tools-> Options-> tab Mail Format-> Editor Options...-> section Proofing-
button Custom Dictionaries-> button Edit Word List...

Thank you very much, Robert.

I would never have found that under Tools etc

in a month of Sundays.

It's a poxy little screen for editing but

it did tell me where Custom.dic resides

so I can now use Notepad there.
