I read that OE does not include a spell checker but relies instead on other MS applications that happen to have one (like MS Word).

I don't have much experience with OE, but there a lots of links to help on the World Wide Web for troubleshooting OE spell check issues if you perform a Google search for something like:

outlook express spell check

Unfortunatetly, I can't say which is right for you.

MS Word likes to use an editable text file. You can change the path, but that is the default:

C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\Microsoft\UProof\CUSTOM.DIC

I see now my custom.dic has several "bad" words in it that I must have added!

The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates.
