Oulook express spell checker doesn't work when deleted previous message

The spell checker in OE (latest version) doesn't work all the time.

I.e. If I click reply to a message and then highlight and delete the reciepients message and then type my own message, and then spell check it will say "Spell check complete" or something to that effect. However my test word of "wijfwkljdlksfj" is surely not a real word! Why doesn't it detect it.

It only detects it as a incorrect spelling if i dont delete the reciepients original message.

What is wrong here... Same thing on oe for winxp.
