Having a problem with Thunderbird.

I have downloaded and installed the GB dictionary.
I have selected it in Thunderbird preferences.
When i try spell check my emails, the spell checker fails to regonise any words i.e all word highlighted as incorrect.

Any ideas?

Hello:
Welcome to the forums.
Not sure, but have you checked your Systems/Preferences/More Preferences/Preferred Applications/
and check to see if Tbird is your preferred Mail Reader?

Hi Seve,

Thunderbird is deffinately my preffered mail reader.

The issue is when i spell check, even a simple word like "at" is flagged as not known, no suggeted replacement, only option i have is to add it o my personal dictionary. This is true for all word in the email.

Cheers,

Andy
