Windows 7: WLM language frustration

WLM language frustration

I am using Thunderbird but I find that it takes forever to load. I would very much like to use WLM instead because it loads like a flash. But there is frustration there also: namely that you have to set the default language before your start writing. My correspondence is mainly in English, Spanish or French and I am constantly changing from one to another. So I write a whole email in French and when I try to spell-check it I discover that my default is still set on Spanish (my previous email). It seems that once I have written the email there is no way I can change the default spell language; I must go out, reset the default, and write the email (copy and paste, obviously) all over.

My question is whether it is possible to change the default language once the email has been written without having to go through the start-all-over process.

My thanks in advance for all assistance.

Hi tonyvella, you can go to this 'Option' to install & set your default language before composing.

Thanks for your reply. I will try and clarify my question a little more.

I have some information I want to share with two friends: one in Paris and one in Buenos Aires. I set the default to French, write my email in French, spellcheck it, and send it.

Now I write the same email in Spanish only to discover at the end that I forgot to change my default to Spanish. Is there anything I can do other than setting the default to Spanish and writing the email all over from scratch?

Thanks again for any help.

Just found the solution!
If you write an email with the default set to the wrong language, save the email and close it. Now go to options and set the correct language as default; then open the saved (drafts) email and the correct spellchecker works just fine.

Ebay Frustration
So I recently decided I was not going to use ebay anymore due to their lack of customer service and the amount of commission they take. They had some promotion where you could list anything for 10 cents with any starting price so I figured I'd give it one last go. The only thing that sold is a...

WEI CPU Frustration
So I'm stuck at a 7.8 CPU score with an overclocked (4.00GHz) 980x. The only component that seems subpar is the encoding, e.g. <WinSPR> <CpuScore>7.8</CpuScore> <CPUSubAggScore>7.9</CPUSubAggScore> <VideoEncodeScore>7.7</VideoEncodeScore> </WinSPR>
