Spell Check Outlook Express

I have just set up a new computer for my neighbour. It came with XP Home and Microsoft Works pre installed. It set up OK, but the option to Spell Check in Outlook Express is greyed out, so is not available. I know Outlook Express doesn't have it's own spell checker, but I thought the one in Works would enable it, anyone know if it should?

If you'd click my link - you'd find this quote:

It's important to note that Outlook Express does not have a spell checker. However, it can make use of the spell checker in Microsoft Office 95 or later, or Microsoft Works (later versions, which include Microsoft Word) if present.

Also a possible fix in the registry and the free download I suggested above!

I thought we were supposed to help others - not **** in the wind!:eek:
