Fixing the dictionary in outlook express

If you just recently upgraded to Microsoft Office 2007, and you use Outlook Express you may have noticed that your dictionary for your spellchecker will only work for French. seems that the dictionaries included in office 2007 will not support Outlook Express 6, to get your dictionary back to where it will check your English or Spanish E-mail what you need to do is to run an earlier Office versions setup in custom install mode and selecting the module dealing with the dictionary.

ex. I used Frontpage 2003 and ran the custom install making sure that the dictionary was active. When I went ran Outlook express next and checked under options the selected spellchecker was in English.

After instalIing Office 2007 in my new PC, the Outlook Express is showing to have only French Dictionary. Kindly advise how can I import English Dictionary in the Outlook or use Word's English Dictionary in the Outlook. Thanks & regards Anup Datta, India anupdatta.anupdatta@gmail.com


All you would need to do is download a spellcheck software and install it. By installing this software it will change all the default dictionary languages to english, at which point it will allow you to start using spellcheck in english.

1.Download this file www.snapfiles.com/download/dlspelloe.html
2.Once you have downloaded the software, double-click on the file and continue with the setup 3.Once that is complete, restart your computer.
4.Now test it out and you should have your spellcheck back up and running

Cannot send/recieve mail outlook express


If you have installed Microsoft Office Outlook 2007, it will set itself as your default mail client. Hit the Windows ball or Start button on the lower left of the desktop - All Programs - Outlook Express. When it opens; hit File - Export - To Outlook (Messages). Outlook Express will export all of your messages, contacts and account settings to Outlook 2007 and you will be able to use the better, upgraded Outlook Mail client.

Cursor jumping backwards when typing in Access/Outlook Express


Just disable the setting "show cursor during typing" in the view properties menu. Also set the dictionary to U.K. as default settings. All necessary files should be present but do connect to the net for any security updates or patches..........sodeep

Outlook Express wrong language


You have to install a dictionary. Go search for a dictionary and install it. Sometimes the dictionary with Office 2007 will not work with Outlook Express. I use to do support for Office.
