I suggest that it is generally undesirable to correct the spellings in quoted text, although it would be interesting to see them, therefore it would be desirable to have the option to ignore quoted spelling mistakes. Also the spell checker frequently objects to names of recipients. If the name is matching the email address then it should not be regarded as a spelling error. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. in text mode, reply to a message which contains spelling errors 2. include salutation with the recipient name as given in the address 3. spell check automatically before sending Actual Results: spell checker raised objections to name and spelling errors in quoted text Expected Results: ideally the option would be available to ignore spelling errors in quoted text, and the name of the sender / recipient should always be allowed in a message. The spelling errors would be notified only in the reply portion of the message.
bug 201866 comment #63 From Michael Kunz 2005-03-02 05:25 PST "I just tested 1.8b1 and this version doesn't skip the quotes. So I tested the oldest available nightly of 15th February and the newest nightly of 1st March. In both versions the spellchecker doesn't skip the quotes. Then I tested 1.8a6. This version does still skip the quotes. Therefore the bug mus came back between the release of 1.8a6 and 15th February."
