I said in my posing of the problem that I had done that! You have not solved my problem. The problem probably lies in contact with a spelling dictionary. But I am not familiar enough to know what to look for.

Thank you for the info. The required dictionaries in your Program Directory may damaged and that may the reason of this issue.

Please download the appropriate zip files (American.zip for american english and British.zip for british english ) from

ftp://ftp.qualcomm.com/eudora/eudorapro/windows/extras/dictionaries/3.0.1andlater/.

Once you have them, unzip the .CLX and .TLX files and place them in the Eudora folder.(To find it, right click on the Eudora shortcut on your desktop and select Properties. On the resulting Properties window click on Shortcut tab. Click on the Open File Location button. You will get open the Eudora program folder. )


After copying the files, launch Eudora and copy and paste the following text into a new message-

<x-eudora-option:MainLexFiles=british.tlx,british.clx,american.tlx,american.clx>

The text you paste will show up in blue as a URL. Hold down the ALT key and click on it - a window will appear asking you to click OK. Click OK. That will do it - Eudora will now use the British language dictionaries and the American English dictionaries.

Regards

Jins

OK I got it with an inscrutable list of


3.01 landlater


3.0and earlier

Did you download the zip files I sent through wikisend ? You need to download it and extract the contents of those zip files. And copy the extracted files to Eudora folder and then launch Eudora and copy and paste the following text into a new message-

<x-eudora-option:MainLexFiles=british.tlx,british.clx,american.tlx,american.clx>

The text you paste will show up in blue as a URL. Hold down the ALT key and click on it - a window will appear asking you to click OK. Click OK. That will do it - Eudora will now use the British language dictionaries and the American English dictionaries.

I have the 2 files in Eudora /downloads/ american


 


This is probably incorrect. Should the files be just under the Eudor directory


 

The extracted files (british.tlx,british.clx,american.tlx and american.clx) should be in the Eudora directory.

Jins
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

OK the American .clx and tlx are directly in the eudor folder.


 


But I do not know where to copy


 


<x-eudora-option:MainLexFiles=american.tlx,american.clx


 


in a message

Create a new mail on eudora and copy paste that code and press Enter. Then it will become a link in blue color.

Hold down the ALT key and click on it - a window will appear asking you to click OK. Click OK. That will do it - Eudora will now use the British language dictionaries and the American English dictionaries.

Cheers XXXXX XXXXX is now working.

 

I do not think instituting the last message was necessary in my case. The capability was always there but the dictionaries somehow got lost. (Beats me!)

 

One point of criticism to your otherwise excellent service. When you gave the link, somehow the "ies" following "dictionar" was truncated.

 

Thanks Ray XXXX
