Spell Checker
 
Can anyone recommend a good spell checker for Microsoft outlook express ?
I upgraded to Office 2007 then find out that it is not compatible with outlook express 2003. Everything works well but the spell checker is in French and there is no way to change it. Has anyone else experienced this? Any ideas??

I have exactly this problem at work. All the king's horses and all the king's men have not found how to fix this yet. It must be a FEATURE!:rofl:

I would suggest composing all your emails in French, then using Babblefish to translate them after they are spell checked.

I thought this was a joke. Had to google it myself. Some explanations and a solution (short story - Microsoft didn't maintain compatibility with their *own* English dictionaries - oh my!):

I use the spellcheck feature on the Google tool bar. I'm such a lousy speller, I tend to use it quite often...
