Customize the spell checker in Outlook Express (automatic spelling for email messages)

In case you didn't know, Outlook Express comes bundled with a built-in spell checker, which allows you to automatically check the spelling of your email messages before you send them. But this feature may be turned of by default, in which case you'll want to turn it on to take advantage of it; Outlook Express also includes several settings you can configure when it comes to spell checking your emails, and this tutorial gives you an overview of each of them.

Configure spell checking options in Outlook Express

Follow these steps to access and customize your email spell checker's settings:

Note: if the word "Spelling" is disabled (grayed out) under the Tools menu of the new email window (from where you write new messages), Windows XP has not detected your language setting and/or spell checker tool. This can be the case when you try to customize or use the spell checker when using Outlook Express in Windows 7 with Virtual PC.

There you go - quick overview of the spell checking ability of Outlook Express and the intuitive settings you can configure for it, in just a few clicks.

Outlook Express Tip: when you compose a new email message from Outlook Express, you can manually check the spelling at any point by clicking on the Spelling button in the default toolbar, or by choosing "Spelling" under the Tools menu (or by pressing the corresponding keyboard shortcut of F7 on your keyboard).
