Thanks for the heads up. The link on the main support page to our service advisories was broken. I just fixed it.

I think it was after using the spell check in email that a lot of random stuff was added to my email? please see below:

I just tried the webmail spell check and it works for me, but I think I see how it might not be working for you.

The way it's supposed to work is that:

  • You click spell check.
  • Your message composition window enters "spell check" mode, which means that all mis-spelled words become red. You can click on a misspelled word and you get a drop down list of correct spellings. You can select a correct spelling, and the color of the word changes to green.
  • When you are done, click Resume editing.
  • If you hit send without hitting resume editing, it transforms your message back to editing mode (fixing the spelling changes you specified) and then send.

I think that for some reason your browser is not able to display the fancy red/green high lighting.

I'm going to change the name of this issue to: allow non-java script spell check in webmail.

I think our system should work for people even if their browsers don't fully understand how to deal with the fancy java script.

Thanks for reporting this!
