Check the Spelling of a Message in Mozilla Thunderbird, Netscape or Mozilla
- Select Options | Check Spelling... from the menu.
- Select Tools | Check Spelling... in Netscape 4.
If you find it hard to remember that spell checking is an option, maybe you have more luck memorizing the keyboard shortcut for this command:
- Ctrl-Shift-P (Windows, Linux) or Command-Shift-P (Mac).
- In Netscape, try Ctrl-K on Windows and Alt-K on Unix and Command-K on a Mac.
While Mozilla does not come with a spell checker itself prior to version 1.5, you can easily install one.
