    No Spell Check or Reply Capability (6)

    Does anyone know why it's not possible for me to do a spell check? Never been able to spell check nor reply to messages. There's no
    error message on spell check - it just doesn't do it. Thanks.

    I don't know the answer, but take a look at some of the results from a Google search: spell check "Outlook Express"

    Farmer--

    These are from the google list: This is a somewhat odd association at first, but some people who lose OE6 Spell Check in IE6 are running Office 97. I don't know if you are:

    When you say "nor reply to messages" what does that mean? Do you mean messages from newsgroups or email messages? Can you send and receive email messages? Which messages and what happens when you try?

    I know this is probably way too obvious, but you have selected spell check to be turned on when using OE? If not, launch OE, go to TOOLS>OPTIONS>SPELLING and make sure you have "Always check spelling before sending" ticked. :-)
