* Click "File," then "Exit" to close Microsoft Outlook.
* Open Windows Explorer. Browse through your file system to where Microsoft Outlook is installed. On a 32-bit Windows system, this will be "c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office XX," where "XX" is the Office version number. On a 64-bit Windows system, this will be "c:\Program Files (x68)\Microsoft Office\Office XX."
* Double-click "scanpst.exe." Click the "Browse" button and navigate to "c:\users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook." Double-click "archive.pst."
* Click "Start." The utility scans your archived PST file and reports any errors or corruption in the file.
* Click "Make Backup of Scanned File Before Repairing" if the Scanpst program finds errors. Click "Repair." Close the confirmation window when the repair is finished.

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)
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.
Make sure you have all of the critical and important patches for both your operating system and MS Office/Outlook. If you continue having these problems after being fully patched, go to the Add/Remove Programs (XP and earlier) or Programs and Features (Vista) applet. Select MS Office (if you have the full Office installation) or MS Outlook (if you have the standalone Outlook installation). In Vista, select Change otherwise select Uninstall (which should open a dialog offering to Repair or Uninstall the application(s)). Select Repair and click Next to let it do its thing. A reboot may be required when it has completed its work. You also may need to reapply service packs and patches so make sure you visit Windows Update, Microsoft Update, and/or the Office Update websites as soon as possible.
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.
When you try to start a Microsoft Office 2007 or Microsoft Office 2003 program, you may receive the following error message or an error message that is similar to the following:
Error 25090. Office Setup encountered a problem with the Office Source Engine, system error: -2147023836. Please open SETUP.CHM and look for "Office Source Engine" for information on how to resolve this problem.
CAUSE This behavior occurs when the following conditions are true:
* Two people installed Office on the same computer. * Both installations were completed by using the AllUsers="" parameter to set the installation for the installing user account only. * When both people were prompted to remove files that were copied locally at the end of Setup, both people did not remove the files. * One of the two people removed Office.
RESOLUTION To resolve this behavior, start the Setup program for Office. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Insert the Microsoft Office 2003 CD in your CD drive or DVD drive. 2. If the Setup program does not start automatically, locate the Setup.exe file on the CD, and then double-click the file to start Setup. 3. After the Setup window appears, cancel Setup, and then respond to the prompts to exit Setup.
Note: You do not have to complete the Setup program. Setup fixes the error condition when it is first invoked.
Do you have an Exchange server running on the same server or are you popping an ISP for mail? Are you logon locally or is the from Termainal services? Also do you have the whole MS Office 2003 suite installed or just Outlook 2003?
