I cannot access "Office Share Features" (where is it?) I need to spell check
Outlook Express outgoing messages only against an English Dictionary, not
French - these explanations are too technical. Can someone please provide a
"walk-through" explanation, so I can get this taken care of and not have to
go back to the Company who built my new computer and have them scream and
yell at me again?

From Bruce Chambers MVP OE concerning the Office 2007 spellcheck

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

Office 2007 breaks OE's spell check. Downloading a free spell check is the
simplest way around this.

is a problem because Outlook Express has never shipped with its own proofing
tools but has used the ones shipped by Office.
b.. There are a few scenarios in which you won't run into this problem:
a.. An upgrade from Office 2003 or earlier to Office 2007 RTM if you
don't manually uninstall the earlier version of Office.
b.. A configuration in which Office 2003 (or earlier) has not been
For example, I have Office 2003 still on both of my computers, and I
still have English in Outlook Express.
c.. The workaround for this problem is to install the English dictionary
from Office 2003 (or Office XP). There should be no need to install all of
Office just the dictionary. The English Proofing Tools can be found in the
Custom Install tree under Office Shared Features|Proofing Tools|English.

I have recently installed Office 2007 which is working fine. The default

started checking the spelling against a French Dictionary and I can't change
