Need Fix For Outlook Express Spell Check

raynbo
After installing MS Office Pro 2007, my Outlook Express will only spell check in French.
Office is set for English, but Outlook express has no other language options to choose from.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled OE to no avail.
I got MSOffice 2007, installed it and OE worked fine. Then I had hard drive problems and sent the laptop to Acer Repair.
When I got it back and reinstalled Office 2007 OE started spell checking in French and I don't know what else to do.
Please help me.

    Not sure if this will work but if you do a custom install you should be able to make sure all the dictionaries are installed for everything in 2007, the reason I don't know if it will work is because I don't know if there is an option for Outlook or just for Word etc, and I have never installed Office 2007, but I think selecting custom when installing and making sure the dictionary gets installed is the best first step, if that doesnt work post back with an update and I'm sure someone will be able to help you :)

    My system has XP Pro SP2 with Office 2007 Basic, but we use Outlook Express and have that same problem with Outlook Express spellcheck only using French. Downloading this program worked like a dream - it is free and work seamlessly.

    There is no good fix for this problem except to install a second party spell that will work with OE6.

    Microsoft is aware of the problem, OE6 is not compatible with Office 2007 spell checker. There is no indication they intend to fix it.
