No. If you have an application like Microsoft Word installed, you can use it to compose and send your email. Word includes a grammer checker.

Yes, "Word includes a grammer checker" but apparently not a spell checker!
The grammar checker built into Word is TERRIBLE, to say the least. The
recommendations it makes are quite funny at times.

No. No spell checker either unless you have office.

OE 6 does not come with it's own spell check. You need Word
or an MS Office program, or you can download a free spell
check at one of these sites.

http://www.majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=2952

http://www.megspace.com/computers/tinyspell/ (Checks the
spelling as you type).

If you do have an appropriate program, see these links.

Spell Checking does not work in OE:
http://mvps.org/PracticallyNerded/OE/OE_Spell%20check.htm
Or:
http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/spellcheck.htm

And: An error occurred while the spelling was being checked
or: Spell Check was halted:

While we are on the subject of grammar, I thought I would point out that
"it's" should have been "its" without the apostrophe. It shows possession;
it is not a contraction of "it is" or "it has" which would both be written
as "its."

That one gets almost everyone, because it is the exact opposite of the usual
rule.

A good site for common English errors can be found here:

Oops! I missed the apostrophe in my last post.

It should have read:

"...that "it's" should have been "its" without the apostrophe. It shows
possession; it is not a contraction of "it is" or "it has" which would both
be written as "it's." Note the apostrophe in the last word.

Yes, the same is true of the grammar checker in WordPerfect, etc. In my view
all grammar checkers I've seen in any program are nearly useless. Checking
grammar well means understanding sentences well, in context, and the state
of the art is nowhere near good enough to do this.

Ken,

You missed the reason that I said, "Yes, "Word includes a grammer checker"
but apparently not a spell checker!"

Look at how "grammer" is spelled.

Alan,

Don't be a jerk. Cross-posting is a pain in the ass when someone blasts a
bunch newsgroups with the exact same message (or unrelated newsgroups). It
is kind of like spam!
