Claws-Mail cannot find for whatever reason its spell checking files.

What you see in the picture, is what pop up, when I click the "compose mail" button.

What's happening here?

Mind, you, that is an old .claws-mail directory, taken from another installation, and copied back after upgrading the system to Fedora 13.

Cheers, --polemon

OK, I've solved it:

The dictionaries for claws-mail are the hunspell-* packages.

Installing hunspell-en solved the issue.

and if you need languages you don't find under hunspell, try then myspell. – mariotomo May 10 '13 at 5:57
