When I type woudl, Mail does not change it to would Note ld vs dl. —– ted cohen Comments: 2 Responses to “How Do I Get Mail To Change a Word for Proper Spelling?” Gary Rosenzweig 5 years ago Is it that no spell correction works for you in Mail? Or just that one example? If it is just this one example, you could go to System Preferences, Keyboard, Text and add a replacement for “woudl” to “would.” In fact one of the default examples is “teh” to “the.” If it isn’t working for you with any words at all, then go to Edit, Spelling and Grammar and make sure “Correct Spelling Automatically” is checked.
