Need help for Outlook Express

Postby Guest » Mon Apr 05, 2010 6:44 am

I am using Outlook Express for my email. Don't know what happened but the default language has been changed to French. I can type in English, but when I did a spell check, it prompted me with French words/suggestions. I don't seem to be able to change the language in the Tools. I clicked on the "Edit Custom Dictionary" but nothing happens. The default language used to be USA English. I checked my regional language setting and everything is as per normal, US English and PRC Chinese.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Did you just installed or uninstalled MS Office 2007?

It is a known Microsoft problem. See the following for resolution. Basically, M$ is arm-twisting us to upgrade outlook express to windows live messages. OR use third-party spell checker (wow ! what an alternative :| )

Outlook has option to retain email on server.
