Windows 7: Outlook 2010 Autocorrect Problems

Outlook 2010 Autocorrect Problems

I'm running Office 2010 Professional Plus on Win 7 32.

Starting after yesterday's MS update, I've been having a strange problem with auto-correct:

If I'm writing a new email, everything works fine. However, when replying or forwarding an email none of the auto-correct actions work with the exception of capitalization (e.g., convert -- to m-dash, ... to ellipses, smart quotation marks, etc).

I have tried the following, with no success:
1. Repair office
2. Run scanpst.exe
3. Started outlook in safe mode

I'm pretty sure that all my outlook settings are correct.

Any suggestions?
