Under Languages, select English (Country)

Hi prodigal son:

This might be the cause:

"You no longer have spell checking capabilities in some languages in Outlook Express 6.0 after you install the 2007 Microsoft Office system":

The following also provides more information. I have both Office 2007 and Office 2003 installed on this XP Pro SP2 computer and don't encounter the problem in Outlook Express (as noted in TaurArian's / Bruce Hagen's reply below, item "b..,b.."):
