    I have set my new Vista powered system to be English UK as her the Help and
    Support but it still insists in spelling in English American in Windows Mail.
    I could add words manually but that doesn't seem very easy or clever when
    Outlook Express did not have this problem.

    Is there a work round that enables me to use my Word 2003 dictionary (that
    understands real English?)

    I notice that some menus and buttons still spell Customize the English US
    way - why?

    regards Peter

    I was wondering that myself, as we too speak real English here in the
    Colonies (except for the area that speaks something vaguely resembling
    All I have as a choice of spellchecks is:
    English (as if there is only one version)
    French (France) (?!! - really, wow)
    German (Germany) (where else?)
    Spanish (International Sort) (I think they mean Catalan? or maybe not)
    Word doesn't seem to connect with Windows Mail like it did with OE.

    Windows Mail only supports US English. French German and Spanish.

    Thanks Julian,

    It seems bizarre that Mail is the default client and is not truly
    international whereas Outlook was.

    It seems there is a bit of tidying up of Vista to do as Customize, and there
    are probably other Menu and button words, is not very English UK.

    thanks Peter

    Just goes to show it is not yet fit for purpose, but being sold to naive
    users who trust Microsoft still to give us usable software after paying
    twice the American price.
