    Hello;
    I am using OE 6 and Windows 98 and the spellcheck isn't working.

    Do you have MS Office or at least MS Word installed?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    No I do not.
    I do have another office suite installed.
    I do not remember the name, it is at the office and I am not. <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15>

    From the help of Outlook Express:
    <font color=red>To check the spelling in messages

    Outlook Express uses the spelling checker provided with the following Microsoft Office programs: Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft PowerPoint. If you do not have one of these programs installed, the Spelling command is not available.</font color=red>

    Bummer!
    Thanks,
    I was just thinking my computer at home does not have any of those programs on but the spellcheck in OE works.
    Is it using another program, like mybe Wordperfect?
