Hi, brickman. Unless I'm missing something (always a possibility), the solution is to install Windows Live Mail. At least, that's what I gather from reading here Maybe when you upgraded to IE8 it forced a Windows update that did this? I don't know.

One alternative might be installing Spell Checker for OE. You can find that at PCWorld downloads Although it says shareware, here they say differently.

Hi, I have just loaded Microsoft office home and student in to my windows xp prof; and I have the same problem. I love outlook express and don't want to change but I had no spell checker until I loaded the cd but as you say it only checks French. I made sure my reginal settings are english uk default and also my custom dictionary but when I go into office tools the only option is French, I was hoping some one could cure the problem for me but maybe there isn't one. I put works in but the spelll checker won't work in outlook express, if you manage to resolve the problem perhaps you would be kind and let me know as well. thank you
