Hi, I recently bought a new computer and got Office 2007. I typically use
Outlook Express (I am told that Outlook is not compatible with Groupwise the
e-mail platform we use at work) and I set up Outlook Express on my new
computer as I had in the past, and found that the spell check was checking in
French. The language is set for French and I can not change it. After
dilligent determinism, I found that Office 2007 did not download and English
(or German) dictionary for Express. The Help area suggest I come here and
ask the community. Any ideas? Thanks for listening.
