Apparently with the 2007 update of Office, spell check is defaulted to French with no other options.
Now you see why Gates is a BIG problem?

Anyway, I found this, and it works perfectly:

Outlook Express is a discontinued product and no longer supported. I'd suggest updating your email client. OE was a nice simple program that I enjoyed "back in the day" but now it's ancient and probably not very secure. Its replacement, Windows Live, is in my opinion pure garbage. I use Mozilla Thunderbird these days.

I have Outlook on the box, but, once again, why would I want fuel injection, 600 horses, and an automatic in my Jag?
This works, I'm comfortable with it.
And, anything to do with google, toolbars, browsers, not for me.

I liked it too, but it has been abandoned so there are no security updates, no support, and I don't think you can even download it anywhere anymore so next time you have to upgrade your operating system you will not be able to get it. Better to simply adopt a new and better system now, in my opinion, and avoid being forced to do it later when it's less convenient.

Outlook Express 6 SP3 is the latest version which is part of Windows XP SP3. Extended support for Windows XP SP3, which covers security hotfixes, will end in 2014.

Doesn't look unsupported to me.
