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, 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!

English United States en-US Dictionary (addon isn't signed)

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.


thunderbird.exe -purgecaches
ThunderbirdPortable.exe -purgecaches
