KB40350: Spell check function sometimes not invoked when "check spelling before sending" is enabled

Article ID: 51011 - Last Review: November 2, 2010


The spell check function is sometimes not invoked when the option to "check spelling before sending" is enabled.


When replying to a Multimedia email, after clicking Send, it does not perform the spell check intermittently.  This happens when the "check spelling before sending" option is enabled.

Normally, after clicking send you should expect it to perform the spell check.  Once that is complete, it will give you the option to send the email.

If a template is added or some other action is performed which causes the text area to loose focus, the spell check doesn't start and it just prompts to send the email.


This is caused when the focus cursor is not located inside of the message text area.


Make sure the focus cursor is inside the message text area before clicking on the send button.
