I had Oulook Express set to check spelling as emails are sent. It's not doing that anymore and it won't let me check spelling manually, the button is grayed out.

I had Microsoft Office (several apps) that were a 60 day trial and it expired, wouldn't let me do anything without a key code, I had no interest in buying it so I used add/remove programs to get rid of it, could that be why Outlook doesn't let me check spelling now?

Howdy:

Yep.. Outlook Express uses the spellchecker located in Microsoft Word, Access or PowerPoint.

Without one of those, there is no spellchecker.. You could try tucows.com or downloads.com and do a search for a freeware spellchecker.. That are a few out there that will work!!
