Spell Check Breaks in 2007 MS Office
You might be in for a not so nice surprise if you are in the process of upgrading your computer to the 2007 Microsoft Office system. It turns out that the spell checking feature, which most of us have become addicted to, no longer works in Outlook Express 6.0 for the English, Spanish, and German languages.
Apparently, there are some newer version files used for the spell checker function in 2007 Microsoft Office which are incompatible with Outlook Express. Microsoft's web site has released a Knowledge Base article (Article ID 932974) on this issue, which suggests considering using other, free third-party spell-checking programs that you can download from the Internet.
