Try this:

Rename these keys: Start > Run > type regedit > press <Enter> > Navigate to the following keys and right click and rename them to:

A. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Proofing Tools\1.0old

and

B. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlookold (example for Outlook spell check) AND/OR HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Wordold (for Word spell check)

Reboot, Open Outlook, and Office will recreate them.

Outlook express does not have its own spell checker, it relies on the one installed with MS Office. Unfortunately the one that comes with Office 2007 is no longer compatible with Outlook. At present there is no solution except to install third party spell ckeck software.

Spell check in Outlook Express stopped working. I have repaired Win XP pro from the original disc and reinstalled SP3 and all updates. I repaired MS Office 2010 because spell check won't work without MS...


Here try these steps. Broken SpellChecker in XP Outlook Express
  • Open your Windows Explorer and navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Proof
  • Delete the CSAPI3T1.DLL file if it is present. If it's missing just proceed to the next step.
  • Insert the Windows XP CD and close the window that opens if AutoRun is enabled.
  • Click Start | Run and in the Open: box type msconfig and click OK (See Fig. 01)

  • Click the Expand File... button to open the Expand One File from Installation Source window. (See Fig. 02)
oe%20spell%2005.gif
Fig. 02
  • Make the following entries in the Expand One File from Installation Source window.
  • File to Restore: Enter CSAPI3T1.DLL
    [Note: This entry must be hand typed rather than using the Browse File... button]
  • Restore From: Enter G:\i386\CSAPI3T1.DL_ (Change the G in G:\ to the letter of your CD Drive)
    [Note: This entry must be hand typed rather than using the Browse From... button]
  • Save File In: Enter C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Proof
    [Note: This entry can be made by using the Browse To... button]
  • Click the Expand button. There will be no outward indication that the procedure was successful. The Expand One File from Installation Source window will close and you'll be returned to the System Configuration Utility window. Click OK to close System Configuration Utility.
If you prefer not to expand the file from your own XP CD or can't get the procedure to work properly;
Download Expanded CSAPI3T1.DLL File
directly into C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Proof
  • Open Windows Explorer and again navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Proof
  • Find the file that was expanded, CSAPI3T1.DL_ , and rename it to CSAPI3T1.DLL
  • Launch Outlook Express and navigate to Tools | Options | Spelling tab. Ensure there is a checkmark next to the Always Check Spelling Before Sending option.
  • Reboot the system and check OE for proper spell checking functions.

I have an E Machine XP and my spell check is in French. How do I change the settings to have spell check come out in English?


Outlook express does not have an English spell checker by default. You can install this file from this website and for sure you will have an English spell checker installed on your Outlook software.

Outlook Express - I am trying to change the spell check from French to English?


You need to change the dictionary in office. You can do this under Tools in Word clicking on Spelling and grammar when the options box opens up choose dictionary language and select English. This shoud reset it for all your office programs as your default. However, If you what to change Outlook only, Open Outlook and select tools, Options, Spelling, spelling and autocorrection and custom dictionaries to make a selection

When I click tools, when writing an E mail, the spell check is greyed out & I cannot check spelling


Outlook Express does not come with it's own spell check installed with program. It utilizes Microsoft Office's spell check if it is installed or a 3rd party spell checker.

To configure Outlook express to spell check you need to go to the tools-options-spelling tab. If it is greyed out or unavailable then you don't have spell checking installed. If you don't have any of the office products or don't want to install them then you need a third party spell checking product.

While sending the Mail from Out Look Express no Launge avaliable in Spell check is only French. English is not avaliable how to add English in spell check


Do you live in France, that French is enabled?
I don't have outlook myself, but like in MS word, there will probably be an option to select a language for speel checking. If English isn't in the list, I guess you'll need to download an English language pack.
If you have trouble finding it, let me know.
