I cannot count the number of times that mail's spell check locks up.
I choose the correct spelling and on some word corrections, the colored ball just spins.
I have to force quit. So frustrating!!!
Any solutions out there????

Thanks Mark

    Mark,

    Repair permissions, then restart your Mac. Check to be sure you have the latest Mac OS Mail updates installed. I have Mail Version 4.2 (1077) installed.

    Check to see if you have a lot of applications open; you might be experiencing a lack physical memory if everything is open on your machine.

    As a last resort you might want to think about reinstalling 10.6.2 Combo from your desktop.


    I do not experience the problems you describe. Good luck. You'll find the answer eventually. This is not an endemic issue with MacOS.

    BTW, I suggest you don't shout at people here to help. Some in the forum will take offense.
