I am using Outlook Express 6. As long as the spellcheck was with Office 2000
or later with 2003, the spellcheck language in O E6 was English. Now that I
have installed Office 2007, the only language in the Spellcheck options of O
E 6 is French. Every word in my composed mail is checked with some French
Dictionary and is found to be wrongly spelled by O E6.
How do I get English language for spellcheck?

If you install Office 2007, spell checking in Outlook Express will not work as expected, unless you
want spell check in French. :) This is because Office 2007 uses new proofing tools and OE can't use
them because it's designed to use the older tools.

It's easy to fix: install just the proofing tools from your previous version of Office (using the
custom install option). You can get them from any older Office suite or application - including
FrontPage, Publisher or standalone versions of Word, Excel, or Outlook.

To install just the proofing tools from Office 2003, run Office setup and choose the custom option.
Uncheck all programs in the list and add a check to choose the options at the bottom of the programs
list. No the nest screen, set each top level item to be Not Available (red X icon). Expand the
Office Shared Features branch and locate Proofing tools in the list. Expand proofing tools and
choose English, setting it to Run from my computer. Finish the installation.

Once installed, restart OE - go to Tools, Options and verify Spelling is configured to use the
correct English dictionary.

Or go to http://www.tinyspell.m6.net/ and download Tinyspell. This will give your OE a spell
checker that works as you type.

Thank you Mr. Richard in AZ. I reinstalled the Proofing portion of MS Office
2000 from the Installation CD and the English Language has indeed reappeared
in the Spellcheck languages. And now O E6 can do the spellcheck as earlier,
