hellodan. It doesn't work. I typed hellodan instead of hello Dan. I had to
tab to get to the "not in dictionary hellodan" and I hit the space after the
"o" and it wouldn't take it. I guess we can't do it that way but I seem to
remember we use to be able to do this in older versions of outlook express.

Subject: Outlook Express spell check edit (Steve Gomez)
After all this back and forth about this topic that began After all this
discussion about your initial question as to how you can get into that edit
field to simply replace a word that the spell checker has discarded because
you ran two words together and it's too lazy to figure that out and put a
space between them, I realize I didn't say correctly how to fix this.
As I told Judith, I do this so automatically that I, well, you understand.
I should have written two words without a space between them or just
misspelled something purposely, then launched the spell check, and fixed the
problem by I didn't , and then reported back to you. But no, I had to think
I could remember. My bad, as the kids say.
Look, it has nothing to do with tabbing or shift tabbing to get into there.
If spell check is running, and it comes to anything you'd prefer to fix
yourself rather than accept one of the program's suggested corrections, you
are already *in* that place. You just edit!
In other words, if you typed two words together without a space, and the
spell checker's first suggested correction is to simply delete the second
word, you don't press tab or shift tab. You just make sure you're at the
end of the first word, add a space, then type the second word and curse the
spell checker for not being smart enough to just do that by itself, and
wonder when Microsoft may think of making this and the Word spell checker
work the same.
sorry for misinforming you in the first place.
