What version of Thunderbird?
In the Compose window under the Options menu, is "Spellcheck as you type" selected?
a window comes up about spellinm

What is the exact text in that window?

How do you put screen shots on here,
my version is 68.8.1 32bit,
in the Compose window under Options there is faint tick in 'Spellcheck as you type'
but it does not.

Using the same menu path as above (Tools->Options->Composition-Spelling) see if "Check spelling before sending" is checked.
What language is identified in that Spelling dialogue?

Try unchecking the "Check spelling before sending".
