Is there a way to make Thunderbird use the Mac OS X systemwide spell checker instead of Thunderbird's own spell checker?

What you mean by spell checker because I have thunderbird 3.0.6 on my macbook and it has spell checker. – Am1rr3zA Aug 3 '10 at 11:09
@Am1rr3z OSX has a built-in spell checker that works globally for every textbox in every program that choses to support it. Thunderbird does not. I wish it did. A global spell checker is great since it enables every program on my computer to know all the specialized vocabulary I use. – bastibe Aug 3 '10 at 11:35
