Sorry to be thick, but whereabouts on the computer will I find C:\USers\ etc?
The user dictionary is located at.
it's named UserDictionary.lex
and is a text file that can be edited.
\AppData is normally hidden
In the newer Windows Live Mail, the user dictionary is easily edited from
within the program.

This didn't work for me. My specific problem is that I have somehow
the accepted spelling of 'to' to 'ot' & can't remember how to change it
I have tried several of the ideas suggested & can't get back to the tool
that will do the trick. Any ideas? (on Vista)

And still the spellchecker refuses to re-engage with Windows Mail. It
fine in WORD 2007, so it's something specific to WM. I have to think that
the power outage corrupted an integral file in WM.
My work-around is now to CTRL-A the email, COPY it, PASTE it into a blank
document in WORD 2007, run the spellchecker, then COPY it once more, then
PASTE it back into WM and send it. Cumbersome? Yes. Effective? Yes.
Maybe with this exchange, MS will figure out a way to re-install the
client without having VISTA tumble down around my ankles!
Thank you once again.

Windows Mail is very difficult to reinstall without also reinstalling
However, Windows Mail comes with the default language for spelling
checks partly set to English, but not enough to work. To correct this,
start Windows Mail, then click Tools, then Options, then Spelling, then
the triangle to the right of the language, then any language except
English, then Apply, then the triangle again, then English, then Apply
again. If you want to check spelling in all outgoing messages, and
is no checkmark in the box before Always check spelling before
sending, click on this box, then Apply. Click on OK.

I had this problem. It started after I edited my Windows Mail user

spellchecker I simply deleted the user dictionary (which luckily only
four words in it), which is called UserDictionary.lex, and is found
Note that this is a separate user dictionary to the one in Word.

again. The UserDictionary.lex file is recreated next time you add a
