I take it that you have had spell check working? If so follow this link:

For spell checker to work you must have MS Works or MS Office application such as Word installed.

Otherwise you need to install a free spell checker for Outlook Express:

Thanks ZAK tried this still wont spell check e-mails just comes up with 'error occured while spelling being checked.

I am running windows XP with microsoft office 97. all worked well until I had problems with BTBroadband and had to reinstall since then spell check won't work with e-mails but fine when using Office.

Spell check works when I send e-mails via Bt Yahoo but not through outlook express my preferred e-mail

thanks for your help
