Office 2007 bug cripples spellcheck in Outlook Express

By Justin Mann on March 2, 2007, 8:08 PM
Some bugs are frightening while others are just plain funny. If you happen to rely on Outlook Express and are intending to install Office 2007 anytime soon, you may want to be aware of a spellcheck bug that plagues OE users. In particular, installing Office 2007 results in Outlook Express 6 being unable to spellcheck in any language except French afterwards, due to the installer removing older files.

Microsoft doesn't have an estimate on a fix, even though the problem apparently began rearing its head some months ago. You can read more about it in Microsoft's knowledge base.

I was a beta tester for this and I reported this bug about 10 times. MS ignored it every time and when I would ask them about it they would not answer me. I quit beta testing for MS because of this bug and their BS.
