Outlook Express 6. Spell Checker ?

  freaky 20:07 15 Jun 2010

My wifes PC is using Windows XP.

For some reason the spelling checker is only in French. When I click on Options>Spelling the drop down box only displays French nothing else.

I have checked Language in the Control Panel and that is showing English UK.

Would be grateful for some help please.

Thanks very much for the link. Yes, she had upgraded from Microsoft Word 2003 to 2010. The strange thing is I did as well, but don't have the problem!

I will wait to see who else replies before I use the action displayed in the link you supplied.

As in MAT ALAN's link you can either install a third party spell checker or use the proofing tools from am Office 2003 CD.

I would recommend the first option, and Spellchecker for OE fits the bill

I installed 'spelloe' using the link supplied by Mat Alan.....and it worked !!!

Only a slight hitch, it only offered "English American" this should not cause many problems.

I will leave this topic open for a while in case it is of interest to other forum members.

Thanks to all who replied.
