Re: Outlook express spell check

In reply to: outlook express

Outlook Express natively has no spell check at all. So either you yourself or the previous owner of the machine (you don't tell about the history) installed the French version. All you've got to do: install an English spell checker, compatible with Outlook Express (MS Word should do).

You might find useful as a background.
