This might not be as easy as it seems...
Suppose I copy some source code (with comments) into a mail,
and then write a few lines of explanations in Swedish...
An automatic spellchecker might choose english...

Please make it possible tho change spellchecker mode (off, auto, languages...)
in the window.

It is probably easier/safer/... to implement the manual modes first.
