I admit, I don't check spelling enough when using Lotus Notes. Recipients of my emails must think I'm completely stupid, which I am, and that explains all the misspellings. To avoid accidentally looking like a dope, set up Lotus Notes so it auto spell checks emails for you. I wrote a post that explains how to get Lotus to check the spelling in your email automatically. Please read it if you get a chance.
