Is there any to get the first letter of the subject, message body, and new paragraphs in Apple Mail to be automatically capitalized? This is standard on the iPhone, Entourage, and Word word processors. Thanks

Not any supported way, as it's not possible for Spell Catcher X to know for certain that the letter you type begins a sentence unless it was preceded by a sentence terminator.

It's possible for an application to know because it has intimate knowledge of what type of text area you are typing in, and the entire contents of it. For instance, you wouldn't want this to happen within a Find/Replace dialog - and Spell Catcher has no way to know the purpose of one text entry area vs. another.

That said, there is an undocumented way to get Spell Catcher to capitalize the first letter of any text area. Search the forums, you should find it.
