    My email spell checker is not working. When I checked the edb.chk file in
    the the Windows Mail folder, it says "Recovered File Fragments" under file
    type. I don't know how this file got corrupted.

    Any ideas on how to fix this?

  3. Ignore the edb.chk file type designation. Its a bug in that that file type
    is used by the defragger and by the database. Its not corrupt.

    Go to Tools | Options | Spelling and change to another language and hit
    Apply and then change back to English and hit Apply and see if that fixes
    it.

    Hi Lucyg,

    Did you manage to fix the spellcheck problem? If yes could you pleas
    share it with me as well. I get error message that spellcheck wa
    halted do you want to continue (to send the email) and if I try t
    check spelling from a new message window it comes up as error 'An erro
    occured while spelling was checked'

    thank

    Thanks Shawn, but unfortunately that didn't work for me. Is there an
    other way to repair the Windows mail application
