so mail's auto correct was getting annoying and I changed it to check when sending.

To my surprise, it starts flagging spelling mistakes in the quoted portion below what I have entered.

I really don't think it's necessary to correct OTHERS spelling in my emails. Is there a way to beat the dumb out of that?

That made me smile. grin

I guess that's the difference between "check while I type" (i.e., not what others have typed) and upon sending.

I have never seen anything to change the behavior you're describing. If it really bothers you, you probably need to switch to some third-party application.

Text is text. How is the spell checker supposed to tell yours from others?

By default, the email text you're replying to is marked as quoted (by being indented). Perhaps Mail could not spellcheck quoted text?

That's exactly how I was expecting it to behave.

Sounds like a bug feature request to me!
