How do I spell check my email before sending in AOL Mail?

We understand that not everyone is a Spelling Bee champion. That's why AOL Mail includes spell check, to help with even the most difficult words. Let's face it, even Spelling Bee champions make mistakes!

To spell check your email:

1. Address and type your message.

2. Above your message window, click the Spell check button.

””

3. Words that might be misspelled will be highlighted in yellow. If there is a word highlighted in yellow, click it to display a list of replacement words. To replace the highlighted word, click a word from the list. Continue to do this to all the highlighted words in the email.

Note: Was a word highlighted but you want to keep it the way you spelled it? You can:

  • Ignore this word: Clicking this option will remove the yellow highlight and ignore any correction to that word.
  • Ignore all: Clicking this option will remove the yellow highlight and ignore the word as it's currently spelled for every instance of the word throughout the email.

That's it! Send emails without the fear of mispelling (Oops! I meant misspelling!) words.
