Outlook Express 6.0 spellchecker won't run

  RichardG 22:09 24 Sep 2009

Recently I began to get the error message that the spellchecker wouldn't run but I could still send the email. Windows Help pages don't! I also have Word 2007 and the spellchecker is fine in that. Could anyone advise how to get OE to run the spellchecker? Thank you.

OE takes the spell checker from Word - unfortunately it will not work with Word 2007. Easiest answer is to install a third party spell check program which will work without the earlier versions of Office.

Not quite what you were looking for, but it may help with the vagaries of Office 2007!!

Sea Urchin & TonyV - thanks to both of you for your responses. I'll look for a suitable programme to download.
