Spell Check Your Emails

It’s easy to misspell a word when you are writing an email.  From typing errors (like ths) to general ignorance of correct spelling.  Luckily, for those of us who care about our spelling, computers can come to the rescue.  But there’s a catch, as you’ll see.

If you use Outlook Express or Microsoft Outlook, it’s easy to set the program to automatically check your emails before they are sent.

1. Open Outlook Express or Microsoft Outlook and click on “Tools” and then “Options…” in the menu bar.

2. In the “Options” window, click on the “Spelling” tab at the top.

3. On the Spelling page, click to put a check mark in front of the option that says, “Always check spelling before sending”.

4. Click the button at the bottom of the window that says “OK” to save your changes.

The catch I mentioned is that the spell check program used is actually that contained in Microsoft Word.  If you don’t have Microsoft Word installed the spell check for emails will not work.
