It should check a MIME-character encoding field in header. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Spell check for a message (like Japanese or Korian) 2. 3. Actual Results: Thunderbird tries to check spelling and generate odd results. Expected Results: Skips spell checking. It doesn't occur on 0.7. I think this bug is introduced 0.7.1.
Summary: Password check should not apply for internationalized message → Spell check should not apply for internationalized message
I don't think checking MIME-character encoding is a good idea to take decisions on spelling. I personally use ISO-8859 encoding to write messages in english, french and spanish . Ans MIME-encoding happens _after_ the message has been composed, doesn't it ? Perhaps this should be a ENH request for a default language preference of message composition, with various languages fallbacks (like the languages preference for the FireFox browser), with a button to choose alternate languages on a per-message basis ?
