Question about Microsoft Outlook Express

1 Answer

Outlook Express is using incorrect dictionery

Outlook Express is using a French dictionery to check spelling prior to forwarding emails. I am using version 6 with Windows XP service pack 3.
If you go to Tools/Options/Spelling the only language available is French.
I have checked Microsoft word and it is still using the English version.

The problem appeared at the same time that I down loaded the trial version of Microsoft Office 2007. Possibly only a coincidence.

    All settings for date time language and region are still correct. Language tab is still english. The problem only seems to be limited to out look express

    Thank you for your suggestion, as indicated in my problem I have tried this and the only dictionery available is French.

I accidentally permanently deleted my Outlook Express application, can it be restored? My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit, 2009 version, Service Pack 1


Windows 7 does not support the use of Outlook Express - this was removed from Windows Vista and Windows 7 and replaced by Windows Mail (in Vista) and by Windows Live Mail (in 7).
If you have copies of the Outlook Express mail database files (inbox.dbx etc) you should be able to migrate these into Windows Live Mail using the Import Messages option in the File menu and selecting Microsoft Outlook Express 6 then browsing to the folder where your mail database files for Outlook Express are held.
If you have previously exported your Outlook Express account details (name.iaf) - you can import these into Windows Live Mail too through the Import option in the Accounts page.
Lastly, if you still have your Outlook Express Address book (name.wab) this can be imported in to your Windows Live Contacts by selecting File then Import Windows Address book (.wab).

How to instal outlook express?


Outlook express only comes with windows xp and earlyer windows versions.
However in windows vista microsoft did replace outlook express with windows mail and
in windows 7 they left it completely out of the package.
In windows 7 you'll have to install windows mail from the windows live essentials package, wich is free to download.
Outlook express can't be installed on windows vista and 7, use windows mail instead.


Download Windows Live Essentials here: http://explore.live.com/windows-live-essentials?os=other

Outlook express does not have a spell check feature. You could try a different mail client such as Mozilla Thunderbird:

Or if you prefer to stick with Outlook Express, you could try an add-on spell checker such as TinySpell:

I have windows mail and would like outlook express. Is there somewhere I can download it for free or do I have to buy a program?


If you have Windows Mail, you no doubt are running Windows Vista. Sorry, but Outlook Express is not supported in Vista. You are stuck with Windows Mail or a third-party mail client. FYI, I use Thunderbird and am quite satisfied. It works with Windows XP through Windows 7

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.

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.

Spell check windows xp home edition


The spell checker usually comes fro Microsoft Office. If you do not have Office or you have Office 2007 you can download Spell Checker For OE 2.1 from the Microsoft site. My guess is you found the spellcecker in Outlook Express is in French. Spell Checker For OE 2.1 is not a Microsoft product but it works well for outlook Express and is free.
