 Spelling Tab Greyed Out

I'm a newbie iMac user and I have been using OE for the time being as my
mail application.  Under preferences the spelling tab is greyed out.  Why is
it greyed out?  (In other words can I do a spell check like I can on my PC).

TIA

I got the answer in the help section.  MS Office must be installed to use
spell check.  OE seems pretty useless without a spell check function.  I'll
be looking for another mail application.

I used to think the same thing....

Then I got MS office, a must have for those of us who love the mac, but
live in a PC world!!
MS office will solve many issues when dealing with those who think the
PC is a better product!

Can't believe that I went several years without it!!

No spell checking without MS Office.
You could also try downloading a spell checker. There are freeware/shareware
ones available out there. One that comes to mind is Excalibur (freeware).

Unless they changed their policies -- I didn't stick around to find out --
Eudora freebie didn't  spell check either unless you allowed your screen to
be used as a billboard. Only one application is required, not entire
MSOffice. Not sure if it must be current or can be old, and how old.

CompUSA has the Word and Entourage package for $119.  This seems a pretty
value for that price.  Has anyone tried that package?

I'm not very fond of MS Office - but I do have it installed and working. Yet
OE refuses to use the spellchecking - and the tab is greyed out.
/Any ideas...?

Open MSWord and type some mumble. See if the speller works. Make sure the
"language" is set (see your help as versions differ). If it isn't working,
that affects OE. Mine has had this happen many times.

It only works with Office 98. If you have Office 2001, you should upgrade to
Entourage and use that instead of OE.

I was just about to ask the same question actually. And I understand that the
package is actually Word w/ Entourage SE. Does anyone have any clue what the
difference is between Entourage and the SE version??

Thank ypu for your answer, David.

I use OE 5.02 and Office 98. It worked earlier, and no changes are made.
So its still a mystery.

Yes. SE doesn't come with Palm or AppleScript support but everything else is
the same.

Did you ever have Office 98 installed? If so I bet the proofing tools are
still around on your hard disk.

Office 2001 was installed on a drive that never had Office 98: I did a drive
switch in between the two releases (moved docs to own drive; apps to
another).
