Windows Live mail spelling check current language

Q: Windows Live mail spelling check current language

In Live Mail I work with up to 3 different languages.
I understand that the spelling check detects which laguage is used and automatically starts checking accordingly.
Some image of the spelling check menu I have seen on the net did show a "current laguage" button in the spelling check menu.
However in the menu on my computer ( Dutch version) this button is not there.
I appreciate suggestions

Preferred Solution: Windows Live mail spelling check current language

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a box (in WLM 2009) that can be checked called "check spelling in current input language". Is that the one? I'm not sure what it does since my spelling is checked even if that box is unchecked but maybe it refers to the case where multiple languages are installed.

Hello to all,

I have just set up gmail account in windows 10 mail app. It looks great but immediately I noticed something that annoys me.
I cannot figure out how to set up default language proofing? Fr example I live in Europe and I have set up my default keyboard and location to match my country, bu because of my job I have to write a lot of emails in English and in German.
I found that it is not possible to switch to language when writing email. For example, when I create new email and choose language in the upper part, immediately when I start typing it switches back to default language layout. This setting is simply not remembered. So when I type almost all words are red - underlined

Right now the only way is to finish writing the complete email, then select all and chose to for example English language, and then proofing tool shows typos. Basically this way it takes me more time writing email in windows mail app comparing to gmail web.

Does anyone have similar issue?

Hello

I use Windows Live Mail for all my e-mail stuff. I need to type mails in 3 languages: Dutch, English and French. I'd like to have spelling check for these 3 languages, however spelling check for French seems to be missing. I went into options and then spelling check. There is a box with languages I can use spelling check on. This includes Dutch, English (UK), English (US), English (Australia) and English (Canada). French is not there. I really need French spelling check. How can I obtain that?
If you need more information, please leave a comment.

Thank you in advance for a response.

A:WLM spelling check language problem

Hi Highdetailz, welcome to 7F!

If I understand you correctly, you don't have French listed in the choice of languages box as shown in this example, correct?

Source Step #4: Windows Live Mail 2011: Add a second language to the Spell checking feature | a Tech-Recipes Tutorial

If so I may have found a way to add it. There are also two other choices you can try.

1. Run a SFC /scannow to repair any corrupt files, then check to see if WLM has the French listing back. If that doesn't work:

2. Repair WLM: In your Start menu search box, type wlarp , and click the application highlighted in the results list. Answer yes to the UAC prompt.

This brings up the dialog window to repair or uninstall. Select Repair all Windows Essentials programs. WLM is part of Windows Essentials so you have to make that choice. When the repair is finished check to see if you have French listed.

   Note
wlarp stands for Windows Live Automatic Repair Program.
If all that doesn't bring France back, the third way is more complicated, from a thread on the MS community Forum, top of page 2:

Hello all,

I'm working an issue for a client that's very odd.

At first they were unable to receive mail in Windows Live Mail (2011). It was giving a generic "server time out" error which indicated to me a corrupt or stuck message.

For me step 1 is always un-install norton (which I did)

Afterward I accessed their account via web-mail and cleared out all the new messages; the error persisted.

So, I rebuilt the account. During the process of re-downloading all 17,600 messages (since they had marked to leave all on the server) I discovered and cleared 2 corrupted messages (1 at the top of the box and one at the bottom in the very old mail).

So, all mail was received and they were sending and receiving with no trouble.

I installed AVG and returned their computer.

Two days later they call very upset that system performance had come to a crawl since I worked on thier machine.

Turns out the system is performing just fine; its only the email that is slowed down everything else seems fine.

So the new problem:

Windows Live Mail freezes for exactly 49 seconds after you hit reply the first time you hit reply in that session. Every subsequent time it opens immediately with no lag.

In investigating this issue I found perhaps the underlying cause. When I go into the options and click on the "Spelling" tab it complexly locks up WLM and I have to end process on it to get out of it.

Here's what I've done to try and repair it:

Hi,

When I'm at my Windows Live home page, h t t p://home.live.com/ the "Checking for new messages..." never stops. I deleted all messages in all folders too thinking maybe one of them was the cause of the problem but the check goes on. The Windows Live help isn't much help either, I've searched and can't find anything about the never ending check for new messages. What do I have to do to make it finally give up the search or is this normal behavior?

thanks in advance,

xstepperx

PS

I just figured out it has something to do with IE 8's security settings. I keep security for the Internet, Local intranet & Resstricted sites zones set to High, the Trusted sites zone set to Medium-high, and add sites as needed to to the Trusted sites zone when I need them to work. I have *.live.com, *.msn.com, *.hotmail.com, *.passport.com, & *.microsoft.com in Trusted sites already but obviously I'm still missing something. Anyone have any idea what I need in Trusted sites for my mail to work as it should?

Hi -

I have an issue with Spell Check in Windows Live on Windows 7 Home Edition. It's an odd problem, as it occurs only about 20% of the time, but often enough to be annoying!

When I click on Spell Check, nothing happens. Then I click "send" to send the e-mail. I get this message: "The spell check on this document was halted. Do you want to send anyway." Only one problem: I never halted the spell check! Very annoying even though it happens only about 20% of the time. Nobody seems to know anything about this issue, so any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks!

Not sure about 2011 or the ribbon but in the 2009 version the "check names" box pops up when you try to send the new message if the format of the name is incorrect. There is also a "check names" button that normally doesn't do anything unless you have entered an incorrect or incomplete email address. In that case it will automatically pick an address from your address book that looks like a close match if one exists.

I have received some complaints that the spelling check for Windows 10 does not work within most webforms and/or internal websites. While I am typing this message I can see squigly lines for nearly each word since my native language is Dutch and this message
is in English. This same effect does not work for all forms or fields. Sometimes it will give a squigly line but it won't offer any alternative options. It looks lik the type of field detemines if the spelling check works or not.

In the past we had an add-in for Internet Explorer called Spelling Check which was a lot more reliable. Since it is no longer available we don't know how to offer the same functionality for all forms and websites.
Please let me know if there is anything that can be done to improve this.
The current spelling check built into Windows 10 itself only seems to check certain field types. For example the field I am typing in right now seems to be working just fine, highlighting errors and making suggestions. Other websites however this feature

Some of our web applications/sites no longer have a spelling check now which is a hassle for our users. Are there any known restrictions to the field types that are checked?

Hi,

I had to re install my OS. After I did that the fun of installing everything started and one of those things was Windows Live Mail.
I've done this before when I bought my new computer and had some issues importing my mail as well which was the same idea, Live mail to Live mail.

Now I'm facing the issue again and find it hard to find a simple and straight forward answer to my issue as most topics go about Windows mail or show importing methods which aren't the same as I used before so I'll try to explain as good as possible what I encounter.

I click on import messages and select email messages. Then it lets me choose a folder from which I can install. I select my external HD where the back up is. Then when I want to add it I get the option to either select the folders I want to add or I can add all of them. Strange thing here is that it doesn't show my inbox or any subfolder, and I had many subfolders, but only shows the deleted folder. When I do proceed it adds that what it showed and I don't have anything imported other then the deleted folders.

Now I might be doing something wrong as in the past this was the way I could import and export. Maybe I don't have enough rights for the folder?
I do hope that someone can help me out and have a straight forward solution because if I lose all these emails I will go crazy

Looking forward to any help.

While checking for misspelled words in a document, you probably click the Ignore Once or Ignore All button a few times. Doing so lets you skip a word that you don?t want to change but that the feature thinks might be misspelled. Spelling and Grammar remembers the words you skip and skips them during subsequent checks. Most of the time, that?s what you?ll want. Occasionally, it?s a problem. You might realize that the word was misspelled and you need to change it. Unfortunately, Spelling and Grammar won?t find ignored words, after the fact.

Just wondering if anyone else has had the following experiences recently;

First, when I opened Windows Live Mail today, one fortnightly recurring event notification from my Live Calendar started sending reminders via Live Mail to me. About ten events were immediately loaded and showed as Emails in my In Box. I deleted [unopened] all the subject Emails, followed immediately by emptying of the contents of the Deleted Folder.

However, the Emails kept coming, and the only way to stop the problem was to open the Calendar, select the subject Event and delete all future recurring instances. By that time, Emails for notifications into the middle of 2011 had been received, and I treated those the same way as detailed above.

Second, for the first Email that I wished to send after this strange behaviour, this anti-spam security clearance panel appeared;

I needed to complete the clearance, before the Live Mail email was sent.

Now I'm left wondering what this was all about?

- Imported (using the Windows Mail format) the Account info successfully,
- imported the Contact info successfully.
- Import Messages - appeared at first to be successful

Issue: Message folders appear to be renamed and some folder names have been truncated, not all folders appear to be there. (Looks like "long Name folders greater that 8 characters get truncated)

So...

2) Tried the "Easy transfer mechanism (Vista and Win7 transfer utility) - but couldn't get the new computer to see the Vista even though I could see them on the network. I thought that this would transfer the folder names correctly.
I'm about to try a time consuming effort of coping folder by folder (export/Import)
What I am more concerned about is that the individaul messages may have the same issue Ie not all coming accross and subject names being lost.

A:Solved: Troubles transferring Windows Mail Vista to Win7 Windows Live Mail 2011

I get a little nauseous just thinking about Windows Live Mail 2011, much less expending effort to use it, but I would try installing it on the Vista and see if it has the option right up front of importing stuff from Windows Mail. If it does, and happens to work correctly, then all you would have to do is find its files and copy them over.

By the way, are you putting on airs with "Addias" transfer? We plebeians just used "sneaker net."

This is a slightly annoying problem. I've disabled Windows Live Messenger from starting up, both through Messenger's options and through MSCONFIG. The program doesn't start when Windows starts. But when I log on to Windows Live Mail through a web browser, Messenger starts up on it's own. I cannot figure out a way to disable this. I've looked through Live Mail options and can't find anything to denote starting up the program. I only use my Live Mail account for junk mail, but need to check it occasionally and would prefer it if Messenger didn't start up on it's own.

...Pop open IE on any machine with Messenger, choose the Tools menu, Manage Add-ons
and Enable or Disable Add-ons. Show the entries that run without requiring permission and
the specific entry you'll want to disable is "Windows Live", which corresponds to the
"MSGSC1~1.DLL" file which in the latest 2009 release will correspond to \Program
Files\Windows Live\msgsc.14.0.8050.1202.dll and CLSID is

Hi all,
 
Earlier this year "Check Spelling as you type" in Word 2003 worked fine. Now it does not and the red wavy line does not appear under wrongly spelled words. (unless I click Spelling and Grammar first).
 
I have tried every suggestion on this web page with no luck.
The registry item named '1' mentioned in the article was missing.
 
It's a real mystery as the 'check spelling as you type' still works in PowerPoint and also in Windows Live Mail.
 
I can reactivate 'check spelling as you type' in a document If I choose to run a spell check via the 'Spelling and Grammar' icon on the toolbar or from the 'tools' menu item. Only then does 'check spelling as you type' begin working again for the current document.
 
I tried a system restore to June which is our earliest restore point for 2014. (I have restore points for 2012 but inexplicably none for 2013. I'd rather avoid going that far back in time)
 
I re-installed Microsoft Office 2003
 
any other ideas?

A:Word 2003 - 'Check Spelling as you type' no longer works correctly

You have have tried everything I would have. Unfortunately Microsoft no longer supports Office 2003 products. So you're not going to get much help from them. Office 2003 support ended the same time that XP support ended.http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/help/support-has-ended-for-office-2003-HA103306332.aspx

Hello GBP,

Was there something wrong with Windows Live Messenger 2011 that we could help with so you wouldn't have to worry about using an older version of it?

Here's the most common complaint and solution for it.

I find the assocation of windows live mail and messenger very annoying. In WL Mail, I use both my hotmail and gmail accounts. I prefer to save my passwords so I don't have to enter them every time I open my mail. However, if I get WL Mail to rememberr my passwords, my hotmail account automatically pops up first when I want to sign into WL Messenger, even though I never use hotmail in messenger (just the gmail sign-in). So now, I always have to change the sign-in information on messenger because somehow it prefers my hotmail account.
Simply clickinig 'forget me' in WL Messenger is not the solution since this also makes WL Mail forget my hotmail password, so I have to enter this one very time I open my mail.

So somehow I would like to dissociate the two, to have WL Mail to remember my passwords, but WL Messenger to forget the hotmail account. Does anyone know if there's any way to do so? I hate these automatic associations that you don't have any control over!

Windows Live Mail & Windows Live Hotmail Plus

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I use at times both the WLM & W Live Hotmail Plus.

If I use the Hotmail I can not place a foto in the body of a message however I can send
one as a attchment.

If I use the WLM I can add a text sig, a foto sig, or both if I use the layout format and
stored pics.

What puzzles me is if wish to set-up a permanent sig I can create the text but when I
attempt to add a foto and select the source the system opens but when I select pics
the file is empty.

My sequence to try to set up a sig is as follows:

Select NEW message, then I go to the tools, options, and signature

Thanks for any info
