Outlook Express spell check in French only
Posted on 2013-10-23
I recently setup an old PC with WinXP SP3 and OE (Outlook Express 6) for a friend.
The user likes to use the OE option:
Tools > Options > Spelling > Always check spelling before sending
However, with that checked, when a message is sent it is picking up errors with basic English words, like "you", etc.
So, looking at:
Tools > Options > Spelling > Language
we see that the only language available on the dropdown is French.
If we go into:
Control Panel > Regional and Language Options > Languages > Details
we can see the Default input language is:
"English (United States) - US"
and Installed services are
EN English (New Zealand) (that's our country)
EN English (United States)
Q1. Why is French the only language available on the OE Spelling dropdown?
Q2. How can we set it to English (preferably NZ or UK)?
