I am running Windows XP Pro; just installed English/Thai for Office 2007. All office programsa work perfectly. But Outlook Express (6) no longer has an
english spell checker. Any suggestions on what to do to solve? It was there when using Office 2002.

Spell checking in Outlook Express uses the Office spellchecker if it is available. If there is no Office installed, there is no spellcheck.

Microsoft's Office 2007 switches Outlook Express spell-checkers to work only in French. Those disposed to communicate in other languages are being advised to use third-party programs.

Microsoft has confirmed the problem, and explains it comes about when the Office 2007 installation process removes older spell-checker files. The notice invites users to solicit advice about third-party spell-checkers on Microsoft's community forum. The new spellcheck files installed with Office 2007 do not work with Outlook Express 6.

Yes, i was surprised to see that the language for the spell checker was FRENCH!

I found on the internet Spell checker for OE, a freeware program and it works perfectly.

Thanks for the info.
