Checking Spelling in Email Messages

There are two methods of checking spelling in Workspace Webmail: Workspace Webmail Spell Check Tool and the Firefox 2.0 Spell Check Tool.

If you are unsure whether you are using the Workspace Webmail Spell Check Tool or the Firefox 2.0 Spell Check Tool, see Setting Composing Preferences.

Internet Explorer does not support the Firefox 2.0 Spell Check Tool. If you are using Internet Explorer, it defaults to the Workspace Webmail Spell Check Tool.
