A sore point this Martin. Our Lord and master has been trying to get one fixed up since the start but as I gather it for technical reasons he is unable to set one up, specifically on the sight although there are some off sight ones that you could use. I think you will find a thread about it somewhere on the forum,

Bit of a pain , but if I am posting a large message I just type it in my email , spell check and then cut and paste.

Hi Martin,

Nip over to   http://www.iespell.com

They have a great little spell checker that is free.  Sits in the 'Tools' menu of your Explorer menu bar.  When you've finished typing in just press and holding your right mouse button - a menu will appear, go to the bottom and 'Select All'. With text now highlighted go to the 'Tools' option on the explorer menu bar and select 'ieSpell' and away you go ....

Its a great program with loads of options and its F R E E !

Cheers - Ken

Hi Shipmates
Back again

Didn't realise you had to press the notify tab at the top of the page for automatic replies. Its done now

I have loaded the ieSpell software and think its great also will use the the copy and paste in the email too.

I have found the Google one quite handy, they also have a translate button.

Hi Tug53

Surely as a moderator you would have been instructed in the functions of the this site and been aware of the notify tab:o

I stumble over many modeller's  sites each very different in their layout and functions available. Hence it may take a lot of reading and looking for a reason why certain things don't happen like.. not receiving replies to a thread posted on.

Hope it help you ???

Actually, I had a very good idea of what the 'Notify' button was for, just hav'nt had the occasion to use it.
Thanks for setting me straight though.
