Change the language that spell check uses in Outlook Express

When I use spell check in Outlook Express, the dictionary is using French only.  I have followed the instructions to change the language it uses, however French is the only available selection.  How do I get English (Canadian) as an available selection?  I am running Outlook Express 6 with Windows XP.

You no longer have spell checking capabilities in some languages in Outlook Express 6.0 after you install the 2007 Microsoft Office system:

Outlook Express cannot use the MS Word spell check in Office 2007. Downloading a free spell check is the simplest way around this.
