Chapter 15. Mail > To open Preferences and get the Composing pane

To open Preferences and get the Composing pane

  • From the Mail menu, choose “Preferences…,” then click Composing.

    Format: “Rich Text” allows you to stylize messages with fonts and formatting, but not everyone will be able to see these features, depending on their computers and mail programs. The other option in this pop-up menu, “Plain Text,” can be seen by everyone but does not show any color and style formatting. Choose the format you'll use most often; you can change individual messages to the other format when necessary (choose it from the Format menu in the main menu bar).

    Check spelling as I type: Check this to catch spelling errors immediately. When Mail doesn't recognize a word, it underlines the word with a dotted red line. If you need help with the correct spelling, Control-click on a misspelled word and you'll get a pop-up menu with alternative spellings to choose from. Or from the Edit menu choose “Spelling,” then choose “Spelling…” from the submenu.

    You can choose “when I click Send,” in which case as soon as you click the Send button, Mail runs a spell check. If there are spelling errors, the message won't go out until you've had a chance to fix them.

    You can also choose to “never” spell check automatically.

Automatically Cc myself to send a copy of outgoing messages to yourself. From this same menu you can also choose Automatically Bcc myself to send yourself a copy without the recipient knowing it.
