  • Microsoft Mail Client 3.5

This article was previously published under Q170575


Microsoft Mail Client for Windows installed under Windows 95 does not have a Spell Check Option on the Edit drop down menu. Clicking About on the Help menu, shows the Microsoft Mail version to be "Microsoft Mail for Windows 95."


This problem occurs when the MS Mail client for Windows Setup.exe is started either from a Start, Run, drivesUNC statement or through Network Neighborhood. The installation will indicate the setup was successful; however, the Msmail.exe will not be updated to indicate this is a full version of the mail client and not the workgroups version.


A mapped drive is required for a successful setup of MS Mail client for Windows. Rerun Setup.exe from a mapped drive.
