✔ Best Answer
Why are using Outlook Express when Office has it's own email client (Outlook) which is much better than the free Express version?

Set up your email account in Outlook, transfer your data from Outlook Express, then see if the spellcheck works in Outlook.

Neither of these solutions helped me much. I removed Office 97 and installed
Office 2000 and there was no trouble transfering files from express and installing the accounts.
Thanks anyway for your help .

ps.I still think outlook express is the better program.

Well most people who previously used OE but now use Office Outlook would probably disagree.
For one thing, backing up all your messages & contacts with Office Outlook is far easier than it is with OE, as all you need to backup is one file.

The only drawback with Outlook 2007 is that Microsoft forgot to include an import function for existing email account settings, so you have to do it manually just as though you were setting up an account for the first time. That was a blunder by Microsoft which has thankfully been fixed in Outlook 2010.
