Spellchecker Outlook express is in French

Soooooo.  The spellchecker on my Outlook Express is in French and therefore doesn't recognise any English words at all until I add them.    ;D  I thought it would be a simple fix via the options menu but there is no alternative language available.   :help1:

Have you checked your regional settings in Control Panel?

Good point Rik.  But they are set to English!  :(

Where did this computer come from, Clive?  Does it small of garlic and onions?  :)x

But seriously, it seems that this is due to Office 2007 removing the English dictionaries from OE6.  How helpful is that!  The recommended solution is to download a third party spell checker for OE.

You've got to love Microsoft. Maintaining backward compatibility with the 8086 chip, but not with their own software.  :icon_drowning:

That is incredible!  Yes, I have Office 2007 installed so it all makes sense now.  What a bunch of half wits they are!  Thanks very much Simon.  This forum has been worth its weight in gold since I changed computers!   8-)

Unfortunately I can't find a compatible spell checker.  Those that are available are for old versions of OE and promptly crash OE6.  This is a real retrograde step isn't it?   :o

If you have Office 2007 installed, why not use Outlook, or give Thunderbird a try?

Je ne parle pas Francais Sandra!  ;D

Thank very much for that Gmax.  The spellchecker turned up but for some strange reason the attachment is greyed out.   :cry:
