Writing email messages in Spanish as well as in English

Writing email messages in Spanish as well as in English

I write some of my emails to Spanish-speaking friends and so I write in Spanish.  Almost every word I write is then underlined in red telling me that it is incorrectly-spelled.  All those red underlines are very annoying and I'd like to get rid of them.  I tried going to Preferences, but there was nothing there to help me.  Can anyone suggest how I might opt out of those red underlines?

I'm not so sure you can opt out of that function.  However, your recipients won't see the red marks.  I know that it's annoying seeing all of them.  If you're on the new email [which I'm not] try looking under the Gear in the upper right corner of email and then go to Settings.  I only use Firefox browser and I know that it has an automatic spelling checker which also underlines anything it thinks is misspelled.  I just ignore it unless it shows I made a typographical error.

Thank you "Again" for your attention and suggestions.  I will try them.

"Again," I too use Firefox and I went to the gear, then settings, then Advanced and I think I have managed to eliminate those bothersome red underlines.  Thank you so much.  :-)

Click on the gear icon again, then on Settings>>>Basic Settings.  There you can switch from English to Spanish.  See if that resolves it for you.

Oh yes, "Again's" kind answer did solve that ugly red-underline problem!  AND an extra benefit - I found in the same place a way to change the font I use in email from one I didn't care for to the one I prefer.  I hadn't been able to do that for quite some time.  So double thank you.  :-)
