The spelling settings can be set per application, so it just sounds like you've turned it off in Mail.
Just check the settings in the Edit -> Spelling and Grammar menu and re-enable the 'Correct Spelling Automatically' option.

I have the same problem that Gerard has.. Mail just stopped auto correcting about a week ago or so...don't recall exact date, but recently.. Under Edit, there's a place that says Spelling and Grammar, and then Check Spelling, but "check spelling automatically" is greyed out and not an option. I've quit mail, and I've rebooted, etc.. nothing makes it change.. Very frustrating to not have that work now. Any ideas?

Have you looked under Mail->Preferences and the Composing Tab? There's an option there for Check Spelling. Mine is set to "as I type" and Mail is still autocorrecting for me. I am running OS X 10.7, which may make a difference, although I never lost autocorrect in Mail.

As I write it suppose to be a problem of the update 1.6.8 v.1.1

Everything in settings is correct and has been. Re checked it anyway and all is as it should be. This is not Lion, it's Snow Leopard after latest update. Auto Correct does not work anymore and rebooting, etc, has not corrected it as well. Thanks for input though.

I've payed attention to this issue a few days ago and also has started to look, whether I changed the corresponding setting occasionally, but no, I never touched it. It really appears that the last system update has broke it. I'll file Radar bug, so that there will be at least any hope to get it fixed in some future Security Update (like they always do for the retired systems).

I have tried to reinstall the combine 1.6.8 v1.1 and not as part of the buildin SystemUpdate.
The bug still occured :-( Let's hope they will fix it soon.

I spoke with Apple because of this Problem. We deleted all the Caches file in
It help me that the Spelling Correction works and replace words if neccesairy. But the Grammar is still not working as it was before.

I deleted all of the files in the CACHES Folders, as stated above, but still auto spell check does not work.. Was there something else I have to do?? restart?? I didn't restart, but I quit mail.. and reopened.. does not work..
let me know if there's something else they may have said to get yours working.. thanks! big help!!

Are you familiar with the OS X
Menu Edit/Spelling and Grammer/
Then Check the following Options
- Check spelling while typing
- Check grammar with spelling
- Correct Spelling automaticly
