How can I turn off the Auto Correct feature in Outlook 2011?
I was not able to find anything about that in the web.
- Disabling all Auto Correcting in the Preferences as Buscar웃 suggested did not help.

The Auto Correct (spelling) is located in the Outlook Preferences.
Open the AutoCorrect and uncheck all.
Just in case we are talking about something else:
To turn off automatic spell checking, on the Edit menu, point to Spelling and Grammar, and then clear the check mark next to Check Spelling While Typing.
Changing settings within Outlook didn't help. It appears that Apple has an overriding spell check, and when it's on, Outlook still automatically corrects words not in its dictionary, making them into embarassing spelling mistakes.
In my version of the Mac OS (10.9.4), the master switch is in: - system preferences - keyboard -text
Other versions of the Mac OS (Lion?) apparently have it in: - system preferences - Language & text - text
Thanks to answers.microsoft.com for pointing me in the right direction.
There are 2 places:
Outlook > Preferences > Autocorrect: uncheck
Replace text as you type
System Preferences > Keyboard > Text: uncheck
Correct spelling automatically
