Everyone can misspell words from time to time (or much more frequently). When you're writing an email, though, it's important to use correct spelling so your recipients know exactly what you want to communicate. Fortunately, AOL Mail includes a smart tool that can check for and correct each spelling mistake.

Even better, you can set up AOL Mail to use this tool automatically on each email message you send.

Set up Auto Spell-Check on AOL Mail

To check the spelling on each of your emails automatically, follow these steps:

  2. Make sure the Authoring category is selected.

  3. Under Sending, see that Check spelling before sending messages is checked.

  4. Select Save.

  5. Select OK.
