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

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.

Outlook Express spell check


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.
