Microsoft Word offers an "exclusion dictionary" feature whereby a word in a user-created list is marked as not being in the dictionary even though it is. (See, for example, http://wordfaqs.ssbarnhill.com/ExcludeWordFromDic.htm) Can one do something similar in Thunderbird, or alternatively delete words from the spelling dictionary? I often use the word "draft" but never "daft" or "drat" so it would save me occasional embarrassment if those words could be shown as mis-spelled!

I don't know if you need to use the -purgecaches command line option after exiting the app and editing the en-US.dic file.

i.e.

thunderbird.exe -purgecaches
ThunderbirdPortable.exe -purgecaches
