    After I type a new email message in Outlook Express, when I pull down the tools menu, the spelling check option is grayed out, so I am unable to use spelling check. Do I have to buy a spelling check program? My old computer had OE 6.0 with the spelling check in the tools menu. My new computer also is running OE 6.0.

    Also, this new computer did not come with Microsoft Word so I installed it from a Microsoft Office 97 disc I have. When I type up a document, I am unable to find a spelling check on any of the pull down menus. There is a "grammer" choice in the tools pull down menu but it does not correct spelling. On the same line as grammer, to the left of it is abc with a checkmark but it doesn't work.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I installed Spell Checker for OE on my mother's Outlook Express and it works perfectly. She didn't want to have to purchase any of the MS Office products just to get the spell checker on OE, and this was exactly the fix.

    Any info on Spell Checker for Microsoft Word? Do I have something not checked off so that it is not available to me but is in there?

    I didn't have spell checker installed in Microsoft Word so once I got it installed there, it now works in Outlook Express.

    Thanks for the assistance.:D
