Spellcheck on OE - Error message

  oldbeefer2 15:46 14 Sep 2005

just fresh installed XP to a new hard drive. When I try to spell check a message in Outlook Express I get an error message that says OE experienced a problem.... report to Microsoft etc etc. Any ideas please?

I think OE spellchecker uses the Word dictionary. Do you have Word installed?

Yes - full Office 2000 installed

Many thanks - the link you provided has sorted the problem. Where would I be without all you experts!

Glad you are sorted.

I am by no means an expert - I had the same problem myself and found the solution in this forum a long time ago.

Where I can I like to try and help - and just about everything I have learned has come from hanging around this forum for hours on end!
