Spelling in Outlook Express

Not open for further replies.


My Outlook Express uses French for spell checking and I need it to use English (US). When I look at the spelling tab under Tools, the only choice provided is French. How do I change it so that it is English?

This is SUCH a well-documented and long-standing scenario.

OE uses the spellcheck from the installed version of Office. However Office 2007 uses different "hooks" for its spellcheck such that OE cannot use it.

You have 2 options. Either install the English Proofing tools from a prior version of Office (if you have it) or do a google for a third-party spell checker application for OE.
