User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; sv-SE; rv:1.8.1.1) Gecko/20061204 Firefox/2.0.0.1
Build Identifier: version 1.5.0.9 (20061207)

I use spellchecking when writing mails. As I often switch between Swedish and English when writing mails, depending on who I write to, I need to switch language quite often. It would be nice if the email composer could chooose spellchecking language depending on who I write to rather than what language I used in my last email.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select language A when writing email to recipient X
2. Write another email to recipient Y that I know prefers language B
3.
Actual Results:  
I need to select language B manually for recipient Y.

Expected Results:  
The email composer recognises that recipient Y prefers language B and sets the spellchecking accordingly.

I can think of two ways how this would be implemented:
1) Add the possibility to associate a language with address-book entries
2) Remember what spellcheck language was last used on a per To-field basis
