I recently noticed that the spell checker is missing. I went into tools,
options, and the spelling tab is missing. Any ideas on what happened?
Thanks in advance for your help.

This link will take you to a site where you can download a free spell
checker..

If you were to install MS Word, that would also enable a spellchecker in
OE..

The Microsoft Internet Mail and News and Outlook Express programs do not come with a spell
checker. They will use the spell checker from any of several Microsoft 32-bit
(Win95/98/NT4 specific) programs. If using Works 4.0, a registry change is required. The
Works 7 spell checker is not compatible with Outlook Express. Reportedly, if you install
the free trial version of some Microsoft products such as Front Page or Publisher, and
then uninstall them, the spell checker will be left behind. There are also some
freeware/shareware spell checkers that may work (see the URL in my signature).

For Office/Word97 on WinXP, this seems to be the common cause:
