The lack of the ability to spell check on windows is a major problem for those of us who can't spell.

I've been a sylpheed user for many years but the continued lack of support for this feature is starting to make me look at other options... I hate to leave as sylpheed is an otherwise great program.

This little program should solve your spell-checking problems on windows once and for all: http://tinyspell.numerit.com . The free version is just fine for most users.

bump. I don't want an external spell checker, I want a 'real time' checker like exists in claws or most other windows programs that allow composing.

I've tried to use spell checking on Windows before, at that time, it works well with GtkSpell but it need some more work and patches to build.


I don't know well about how official build is done, but it will be supported in the future.
