I have a German version of XP home, and write/reply all my emails in Outlook express. I always like to check my mails for spelling errors before sending. However I can not get ieSpell to check the spelling in English with this version of O/E. Also I can not un-install the German version of O/E and install an English version in its place. It works OK in forums etc. Any ideas as to how to solve this problem.
It doesn't have an additional user interface, it just adds a dictionary to the existing spellcheck button on the OE toolbar for new mails. Does your copy of OE have an existing German Spell check ? If so this may be causing problems. Try opening OE then go to Tools/Options and look at the spelling tab, at the bottom there's a dropdown menu that should contain language selection options, Spellchecker for OE should have added English (United States) to the option list. unfortunately English (UK) isn't available as yet.
Belatucadrus. Tried it but it keeps trying to install the spell check for XP professional and then gives up. I run XP home. I think I will just continue to write my mails in Jarte (word program) and then transfer. Its a bit of a pain, but in my situation at the moment, there is nothing else I can do.
I am running Outlook 2003 and have to Spell checker set with English UK as the Default. However as I try to 'Send' each email it comes up with errors and the spell checker shown as English US at the bottom of the message. When I check the default spell checker in Tools it is set as English UK. Why is it insisting on checking with English US?
