    Why is MSWord not holding as email editor? (win XP

    Had laptop melt down. New laptop only option. Now for some reason I can't keep MSWord as my email editor it held for the first day or two. Help.

    Cheers,
    Steve

    I'd keep it that way. Outlook is much more dependable if you don't use Word as e-mail editor.

    BUT Outlook WILL use the dictionary that is in Office.

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

    You won't see red wavy lines under misspelled words, but you can still start a spell check by selecting Tools | Spelling... or pressing F7 in a mail message.

    Okay that can work.

    But Why won't Word stay checked as my program to Edit. It did before the new computer.

    In Outlook 2003, I think the menu is the same in XP, you can also set Outlook to spell-check after you click Send, under the Tools | Options | Spelling dialog.
