Windows 7: Live Mail Spell-Checker problem

Live Mail Spell-Checker problem

I just found out I've got a problem with the spell-checker that embed in the Windows Live Mail. When I writing in one language, and this lang set as default in the settings - everything's good.
The problem is when the language set as default is English, for instance, and I'm writing in Hebrew. The spellchecker mark me each and every word with red line. When I switch the default lang to Hebrew - the lines disappeared. But then - the spellchecker marks me all the words in English. I can switch between the defaults all the time, but what will happened when I want to write something in both English AND Hebrew?

Any idea?

Technically, no. The spell-checker can only use one dictionary at a time. You could, however, type out all of the words in Hebrew you want and then add them to the dictionary. It may be painstaking but that's really all you can do.

Well, that's lame.
But leave the writing in 2 lang's at the same time aside for the moment - the bigger problem by me is that I switch all the time between English and Hebrew in the messages. Shouldn't the spell-checker identety the writing language on the spot? I need to switch all the time between the dictionaries by myself?

It is not designed to do that because the need for it to do such a thing is just not there. If many people wrote bilingually in their messages, then they would see a need to introduce bilingual spell-check dictionaries. It'll only check what language it's set to check, I'm afraid.

The same holds true for other applications that include spell-check (I.E. MS Word)
