It seems Microsoft and google has changed outlook and gmail HTML for the message text body DIV to specify spellcheck="false".

   div dir="ltr" class="[]" role="textbox" aria-multiline="true" aria-label="Message body" spellcheck="false" contenteditable="true"

Any idea how yo solved this ?

Perhaps that is because they have their own integrated spell checker?

I once posted a user script to remove spellcheck="false" in various places, but I haven't tested in Gmail/Outlook: https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/11786-always-can-check-spelling

For context, you apply user scripts to pages using a "monkey" extension such as Tampermonkey or Violentmonkey. (This older script isn't compatible with the updated Greasemonkey or Firemonkey.)
