I bought a new Dell computer. In Outlook Express the spell check does not work. It is "grey" like it is there but not "turned on" or something. When I click on it, it does nothing.

Anyone know how to fix this?

Thank you;

Do you have Microsoft Word installed? I believe it pulls the spell checker from there.

I don't know if this would be helpful...

You could try it, but again, may not have the share/proof folder if you don't have Word installed.

spellcheck is no longer include in outlook express ... you have to add it in yourself with another piece of software like the aforemention word etc.

do you have window xp?

Thanks for the replies and thank you for the link, Laz. Yes, I have Windows XP and the download appears to work great.

Thanks again.

Kinda crazy that spell check no longer comes with Outlook Express :shrug:
