Why can't I use MS Works

The only MS product I have is MS Works and it's equipped with spell check so why won't it integrate into Outlook Express so I can have spell check there?

I searched Download.com for a freeware spell checker for OE, no freeware, but ABC Spell was the cheapest $14.95. I was just wondering if anyone knew why MS Works wouldn't work?

Ther versions of the software might not be compatible.

Ive never used works so im not sure if it is compatible with OE in the first place.

You might try another mail app, i think that thunderbird has a spell checker but i havent really used it so i cant be sure, if you only have works you might try open office its an alternative to MS office and its just as good if not better and its way better than works, wont do your emails i think well it might ive just never tried it i have spell check on my outlook allready.
