    OE 6 spell checker (OE 6)

    I have a machine that does not have spell checking in OE. I have never encountered this before.

    Is it because Office is not on the machine?

    In any case, how do I get spell checking implemented in OE 6.

    As you suspected OE uses the spell checker that ships with Office.

    If installing Office is not an option on that computer then you could try Autospell (a commercial product) or Spellchecker for OE (a freeware product). I have never used either product so can not tell you if they are any good.

    Hi, Bruce ~

    If you install MS Word, Excel or PowerPoint, you may facilitate this.

    it's because office isn't installed, but if you install office 97 or 95 you'll need to do some tweaks to get spelling to work in OE6.
