When you try to spell check a message in Outlook Express, the body of themessage is checked, but the Subject line is not checked.
This behavior occurs because the spell-checking tool in Outlook Expressdoes not check the spelling of words in the Subject line of a message.
To work around this behavior, copy and paste the subject text into thebody of the message, spell check the text, and then cut and paste thesubject text into the Subject line. To do this, follow these steps:
Select the text in the Subject line, click Copy on the Edit menu, and then click the body of the message.
On the Edit menu, click Paste, and then click Spelling on the Tools menu.
Select the subject text in the body of the message, click Copy on the Edit menu, click the Subject line, and then click Paste on the Edit menu.
This feature is under review and will be considered for inclusion in afuture release.
