In Outlook Express Check Tools>Options>Spelling and see if the Check before sending is On

Also, I think MSWord(?) has to be installed in order for Spelling to work. You might want to check MSWord Tools for the Spelling options.

Beefy, when you open his tools>options (in OE) the spelling folder is not there.
I think you're on the right track with msword, i'm gonna copy my msword to a floppy and install it to his system tommorow and go from there.
thanx 4 the help!

Just because you have Word installed on your computer does NOT mean that the spelling feature will work! You have to make sure that the spelling feature (a seperate item) is installed from the Word install. It is not installed by default.

Also, you can go to Help> Detect and Repair and it will repair the spelling engine for you.
