I have to change the language on the spellcheck to USA (English -
(United States of America)) with each new email I write. In the past I
had to turn on spellcheck for each new email I sent.
I haven't changed the settings for HTML on this, so we'll see how it
remembers it with this email. I guess I have to check, as well, if the
composer sets it to HTML automatically when the incoming email I respond
to is in HTML.
On another note, while I see the responses here, I have yet to receive a
single one of the emails I've sent to this group yet! It'll be
interesting to see how long it takes them to show up (and yes, I checked
the spam filter).
Again, thanks and we'll see if this email has kept the settings from
