Can't Spellcheck In Outlook Express

  Parklife 22:02 02 Jul 04

I have a dictionary, and have tried the auto spell check option but the message 'spellcheck was halted' always comes up. No spellcheck. My emails are virtually illiterate.

I'm using outlook 5.0 with windows XP Home Edition, any ideas?

Do you have Word installed. OE uses Word to do the spell check. No Word, no spell check.

I had the same problem with word 97 & Win XP

Many thanks for all the suggestions. I tried the solution you suggested jakimo but it didn't work. Will try the others now. Thanks.

I had the same issue and had to download a small file from Microsoft. It's a common problem apparently. I'll try to find my thread to see if it helps you.
