Click the new button at the top like you are going to start making a new e-mail. you will see a "Rick Text" link that is on the right side of your screen across from the "attach files" button. click that and everything will come back that your missing. once that is back just click the icon that looks like abc with a check near it. that will enable the spell check.

please mark this fixya if it has been helpful and rate me. Also if you wish please fill free to recommend me to others if you have found me helpful.

I no longer have the spellcheck option when using BT Yahoo Mail. How can I restore? Brian Rollinson

you will either see a "plane text" or a "rich text" link when your on the screen where you can type your e-mail on the website. IF you see "plain text" click on that, and it should switch to "rich text" then a spell check button will appear on the page.

if its already on rich text, then look for the spell check button.

if this was helpful please mark it fixya.

Spell checker not working in Yahoo email

" A few of you have been reporting that you are having issues with the spell-checker in the new version of Yahoo! Mail. I just want to let you know that we are aware of the issue and will have a fix out soon.
In the meantime, you can use the built-in spell checking functionality of some of today’s modern browsers. For example, the latest versions of Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari all have in-line spell checkers. If you don’t have one of those browsers installed or don’t want to install one, you can use classic Yahoo! Mail until we have rolled out the fix (from ‘Options’ click the ‘Switch to Yahoo! Mail Classic’ link)."

Try using yahoo mail classic for a meantime. If your using the new mail then switch to classic. There is some glitches that being fix for the moment in yahoo mail. So its better to stay to classic for a while until there system will be fully stable. :-)

Why does it not automatically do a spell check on

It is not automatic because of the fact that there are sum words which are not in dictionaries, like names, objects etc..

so after writing the whole letter juss a single click wuld chk the spellings and you can correct ones you want correction with.

You can also use a third party spelling checker for automatic check of all the text written by you.
